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!
