RESERVED for Les - Rare Mid Century Swedish Stig Lindberg Leaf Dish Hand Painted Pottery - For sale is a mid century modern leaf dish made in Sweden by Stig Lindberg, marked on the bottom with Sweden, "G" for Gustavsberg with a hand, and the designer's mark (a small mushroom).

The hand painted dish is an elongated leaf shape with a chartreuse yellow midrib and bold brown over chartreuse yellow veins on an off-white foundation. A narrow line of red clay rims the dish, and a short stem extends beyond the wide end of the dish.

Gustavsberg Company:
Gustavsberg was set up outside Stockholm, Sweden in 1786. Around the beginning of the twentieth century the company started to produce pottery... Stig Lindberg, who had been a designer there for some time, became the artistic director in 1949. Lindberg was responsible for the experimental studio set up in 1942 to develop new designs for production.

The dish measures 12 3/4 inches long, 4 1/4 inches at it's widest point, and about 1 3/4 inches high.

CONDITION: The dish has 2 condition issues.
1 - As part of the design, the top rim of the dish had the glaze removed, to reveal a fine line of red clay. Along this line there is a 1/8 inch long by 1/16" wide shallow flake/chip (see 4th photo). I don't know if this occurred while the dish was being made or afterwards.
2 - There is some very fine crazing on the underside of the dish.
