Really Good Gunnar

Gunnar Nylund for Rörstrand, Sweden, circa 1950. A typical shape in an atypical glaze, possibly unique, as we haven't seen it before. The overglaze is so drippy in appearance that it looks like molten caramel. The underglaze is a matte, almost teal color. The effect of the pattern reminds me of leopard spots. This may be a small piece at just 7", but it is a huge statement from the ceramics master.
