Rather Rare Rörstrands

A suite of subtle yellow pieces by Gertrud Lönegren for Rörstrand, Sweden. A lovely striped design enhanced by a crazing of glass glaze which pools in a sort of crystalline effect at the center of the low bowls. Also adding to their visual interest is a touch of rusty oxidation along the rims. Made at the venerable Swedish company during her short tenure there - somewhere between 1936-41.
Vases 11", 4.5" high
Bowls  5.5", 8" diameter
