Yes, this piece actually has a name, and it's "Magic Orange". Created in Sweden in the 60s by Vincent Nilsson, a third generation potter of a Swedish ceramics family of note.
What I find so intriguing is his ability to recreate the look and feel of citrus fruit through a speckling style that dots the surface with a variety of colors to mimic the skin of an orange. Huge and heavy at 14.5" in diameter

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!
