Gunnar Nylund

Chamotte Fish by Gunnar Nylund
The Best Things

Click for larger image

This is an unusual object, you usually only see these pieces with many different colors. This is the first I have seen done in just this cobolt blue. It is marked cobolt blue and some numbers on the bottom, perhaps this was a test for the color? Also marked with the Rorstrand Logo and GN. Excellent condition. Approx. 4 1/2" high and 5" across.

UNIQUE Bowl by Carl-Harry Stålhane
The Best Things

Click for larger image

This is a very unusual piece by Stalhane, it is in fact unique! It is a small bowl, 5 1/2" across and 1 1/4" high. The design is handpainted by Mr Stalhane himself, it is not a Studio piece painted by someone else after his design. Fully signed by the man himself on the back. The paint is slightly faded on the rim on the right hand side but it must be from production. Excellent condition and a highly recommended, unusual piece.

This is an "Atelje" vase by Stalhane. Items marked Atelje were made in a limted number, usually no more than 100, and each piece is slightly different. It is marked as a second but I can not figure out the reason why. 7 1/2" high x 3" wide at the bottom. Excellent condition and a very nice piece.

Handled Vase by Carl-Harry Stålhane - Rörstrand
The Best Things

Click for larger image

Very nicely shaped vase by Carl-Harry Stålhane for Rörstrand. It is in the SYS pattern. Beutiful form and haresfur glaze. 8" high. It is marked as a second, probably due to the fact that the glaze is a bit thick around the bottom. There is also a couple of very thin cracks in the glaze there due to the thickening of the glaze. Otherwise excellent condition. Would have been more than double the price had it not been for the faint cracks in the glaze. Still a beautiful piece.

Bowl SXI by Carl-Harry Stålhane - Rörstrand
The Best Things
Click for larger image

This is a sweet little bowl by Carl-Harry Stålhane for Rörstrand. The bowl is in the SXI pattern which is not that common. Very delicate, thin sided piece with beautiful haresfur glaze. 2 1/4" in diameter and 1 3/4" high. It is marked as a second, probably because the opening is slightly off from being a true circle. Excellent condition.

Bowl CES by Carl-Harry Stålhane - Rörstrand
The Best Things
Click for larger image

This is a nice piece by Carl-Harry Stålhane for Rörstrand. The bowl is in the CES pattern and while this is a fairly common shape, the color of this piece is nicer than most. 7 3/8" in diameter. It is marked as a second due to one slight irregularity in the glaze on the outside (see pic). Otherwise mint condition.

SOLD

Bowl SVP by Carl-Harry Stålhane - Rörstrand
The Best Things
Click for larger image

This is a fairly unusual shape (SVP) by Stålhane. The glaze on this particular example is fantastic. It is marked as a second and the reason is probably that there are two darker areas in the glaze along the rim. I can´t see any other reason why they would have marked it as such. 3 1/4" high x 5 1/2" across. Excellent condition.

Price: $175.00

Small Bowl, Carl-Harry Stalhane, Rorstrand, Sweden
The Best Things
Click for larger image

Small bowl by C-H Stalhane. The glaze is done in the most fantastic color combination, with dark blue, reddish brown and yellowish brown. This little bowl is marked as a second as there are some bubbles in the glaze. There is one spot on the inside (3/16") that is quite obvious. It measures 1 1/2" high and 3 3/4" across. A great little piece despite the bubbles.

Art Nouveau & Majolica

Majolica Monkey Dish by Rörstrand
The Best Things

Click for larger image

This dish is from the end of the 19th C, done in a brow majolica type glaze. It is part of a series, I have seen horses, dogs and a walrus and there are probably other animals in the same series out there. Probably designed as an ashtray but makes a great dish for peanuts! I think the monkey is supposed to look sweet, but I think it looks evil.... Anyway, it's a fun piece. It measures 4 1/2" high and 5 1/4" across. No chips or cracks but there is crazing throught, which is to be expected on this type of glaze. Also some slight discoloration on the bottom. A neat piece if you like unusual items!

Bird Figure by Waldemar Lindström - Rörstrand

Majolica type glaze vase - Rörstrand
The Best Things

Click for larger image

This vase really belongs in the category Antique Ceramics since it is over 100 years old but I still think it fits so well in with the pieces in the Swedish Modern category. Love the form and the glaze and colors are just amazing. It measures 8" high and approx. 3 1/2" in diameter at its widest point. No chips or cracks but there is crazing throughout as is to be expected. The Rorstrand mark dates it to the 1890s. A rare, beautiful piece.
