Unique Larson

A name synonymous with Swedish ceramics is Lisa Larson. The still living artist is a national treasure and is best known for her iconic feline figurines. However, she also created other wares for the home such as this rare large vase seen above. Similar works can be seen in the portrait of the legend at work in her studio at Gustavsberg, shown here in the 1950s. Our vase seems an early prototype for a line that was eventually produced called "Granada". The incised pattern has a wonderfully freeform, almost tribal quality to the lines.
Quite a nice size at 14" tall and 12" wide
