Rörstrand Rules

With impressive pieces like this, Gunnar Nylund made quite an impact as the artistic director for Rörstrand in the 1950s. The Meiping shape of this vase has echoes of the 18th Century Chinese Imperial court, while the glaze says mid 20th Century Sweden. Nylund & Stålhane were both heavily influenced by the Swedish Royal collections of antique Chinese and Japanese porcelains and you can see how the ancient shapes and designs such as this one influenced much of their work. Just over 9 inches tall.
