This is certianly the single largest piece from Gunnar Nylund that we have had the great fortune to acquire. Where the average height among others in this off-white coloration is typically around 9" - this behemoth beauty stands at an impressive 26" tall! Made for Rörstrand in the 1950s. I feel that this was made expressly as a presentation or showroom piece (as in not for export) as the country of origin mark on the bottom is incised "Sverige" ...in other words, the Swedish spelling for Sweden.

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!
