A is for Art Glass

Apple vase, designed by Ingeborg Lundin for Orrefors, Sweden, 1957
Signed Orrefors Expo D32-57 Ingeborg Lundin.
H: 37 cm/ 14 1/2"
55 000 SEK (about €6100)

Possibly the most iconic design of mid-century Swedish glass-making, a fine example is currently available at Modernity, a top gallery of 20th-century design, in Stockholm.

So representative was Lundin's vase, that it was chosen for the cover image of Leslie Jackson's definitive 1998 publication, The New Look: Design in the Fifties.
