Edwald Dahlskog (1894-1950) was an renowned Swedish artist of the early 20th Century. Dahlskog began his career as a painter and gradually applied himself to create glassware at Kosta and exquisite marquetry pieces characteristic of the Swedish Grace Movement. In 1929 he joined Bo Fajans where he revitalized the company with his distinctive geometric faience vases. His work is included in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and the Nationalmuseum, Stockholm.
