A glass & pine storage jar in the form of an acorn, designed by Erik Höglund for Boda, Sweden, circa 1960.

Erik Höglund is one of Sweden's most celebrated glass designers and a key figure in the success of Swedish glass during the mid-20th Century. 

His design output was not limited to glass, however, and the popularity of his designs in wood resulted in the Boda glassworks expanding in the early 1960's to include a woodworks, Boda Trä. The workshop utilised the strong traditions of woodworking in the village, employing local craftspeople and using local Swedish timber rather than importing fashionable teak from abroad. The workshop is best known for producing Erik Höglund's wooden candlesticks, utensils and furniture. 

Early pieces often combined wood with glass. This large storage jar dates from around 1960, and combines staved pine with hand-blown green glass. The jar is in the whimsical, organic shape of an acorn. The lid has an impressively lively grain, which is further enhanced by the joins in the staved wood.
