This is a lovely vintage model of a hippopotamus which dates to the 1970s.

It is a fine piece from the Kosta Boda glass from the Zoo Series - which features stylised animals - made in clear glass - often with flat backs.

This large hippo was designed by Bertil Vallien.

In excellent vintage condition with no damages.

As you can see from my photographs - the detailing and modelling are very detailed and certainly beautifully rendered.

This is one of the largest animals in the series - and measures in at just under 8 1/2 inches wide.

Mr Hippo is about 5 inches in height.

He is a shallow model and can be displayed upright - his depth is only about 1 3/4 inches

Weight: 1.5 kg in weight.

A nice fair price for this vintage piece of collectable Swedish art glass.
