A ginger orange ceramic fox designed by Lisa Larson for the Skansen Series of animals for Gustavsberg. The bottom is signed 'Lisa L' and Sweden.

The fox is in perfect condition.

The pictures are:
front
close up of face & ears
back

bottom with signature


The fox is approximately 5 x 6 x 3.5 inches. It weighs 504 grams before packaging. This item will be shipped insured with the Swedish Post Office.

This is a lovely and appealing form. For here, the fox is portrayed in a more vulnerable resting pose, rather than a hunting stance. The purpose of the Skansen series was to celebrate the northern animals and keep people aware of the need to protect them.

I was at an auction once when a Skansen fox came up for bidding. When they displayed the fox, a soft 'Ah!' came from the audience - and from that experienced group that was significant. The picture in the catalog was one thing, the actual fox has 'presence'.

Lisa Larson studied in Gothenburg at the Högskolan för Design och Konsthantverk from 1950-1953 when she left to work at Gustavsberg Porcelain Factory. Lisa Larson was employed there between 1954 and 1980 . During her career she created several hundred different designs – many of which became design classics and sought after by antique dealers and private collectors. She became an important PR personality for the company during the 1960’s and 70’s as her products were immensely popular.

Since 1980 she has continued working in her own ceramic's studio, creating works that are unfettered by the constraints of designs for production. She loves working in clay and continues, now into her 80's, to enjoy her creative life.
