Portrait of Apollo

This lidded urn is a collaboration from two of the greatest names to be frequently mentioned on this blog. The vessel itself was a part of Gunnar Nylund's "Flambe" series and decorated by his equally renown associate Carl Harry Stalhane. The classical imagery is that of a Roman Archer (my assumption is that it is the god Apollo). The highlights of genuine gold give the illustration an illuminated quality. For Rorstrand, Sweden, 1930s
