Description

The year 1904 was a long time ago, 113 years if my math isn't faulty. Having existed for that long, it's amazing that this lovely piece of the ceramist's art is intact with only some minor age-related crazing in the glaze and some roughness around the foot rim that isn't visible when the piece is displayed.

This vase stands a diminutive 3.75" tall by 2.75" wide at the widest point. The sgraffito technique is defined this way: a form of decoration made by scratching through a surface to reveal a lower layer of a contrasting color, typically done in plaster or stucco on walls, or in slip on ceramics before firing. The three motifs that are repeated around the vase are fine examples of this technique.

The base of the vase - shown in the fourth photo above - has the name Gustavsberg, the company's anchor mark, the date of production and another mark I can't decipher painted on in the same blue slip as the decoration. Many of the other pieces I've seen have been the work of Josef Ekberg, and it's possible that the unidentified mark is his initials or some other cipher.

Here's a link to a site that features some of his work for the Gustavsberg factory: http://www.josefekberg.com

Processing time for this item will be brief; I like to get my orders shipped within 48 hours, typically using Priority Shipping via the USPS.

Also, please note that I DO NOT currently ship outside the United States.
