CooCoo for Kokos
Hjördis Oldfors was an important designer at Upsala-Ekeby from 1952 to
1959. These pieces are part of a series called "Kokos" short for kokosnöt
or coconut...for reasons
obvious. Delicate and intricate at once, the yellow glaze is found both
in its interior and inside the meticulously incised linear design on the
outside. We have had these pieces in the past, but there is something so
special about is elegant shapes, they are worth a return visit. The asymmetrical small bowl measures around 6" in diameter and is 3" at the tallest.
The larger bowl measures around 8-9" in diameter and 6" high. That's it in a nutshell!
