In fact, these could easily pass for 1960s and/or midcentury modern glass pieces, especially Scandinavian designs. That’s the market they are aimed at, but without the hefty price tags of vintage pieces. Designs like this can go for a pretty penny. Or at least, the more notable designs can.

Not that most people will realise they are new – the colours of the Bubble Vase Collection are very much of the past, which you can see above. Those colours are described as Topaz, Amethyst and Ink Blue, all of which sit well together, but can easily take the eye on their own.
