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!

There is nothing quite like the fabulous vintage hand blown glass , the rare ceramics, and the marvelous mid-century modern furniture found at "The End of History". We opened our shop in Manhattan's West Village in 1997. Since then we have amassed more decorative objects from the 50's & 60's in one room than anywhere in the world. As a result we've become the go-to for top editors from magazines as well as a choice source to the best interior designers in the world. We will update this blog often... and as new publications come out and exciting new items hit our shelves!
