The piece is an Orrefors Ariel from 1957, it is a low, square with rounded corners, bowl or dish. The piece stands 2 5/8 inches (6.67cm) tall and is 5 inches square (12.7 cm), and weighs 6 pounds. It is internally decorated with 99 reddish-brown rectangles centered by a single trapped air bubble in each. The bottom is a single round patch of reddish-brown. The piece is heavily cased in clear crystal. The rounded corners are beautifully executed, and smooth. The piece is in excellent condition, I have found no chips, cracks or scratches, except for a few scratches on the bottom as would be expected for a piece of this vintage. As you can see in the photos there are four felt circles affixed to the bottom that were placed there by the original owner. The piece is marked ORREFORS/Ariel No 558F/Edvin Ohrstrom. Circa 1957
