A series of bowls called Filigrán produced by Gustavsberg, Sweden's leading pottery manufacturer. It has a tea bowl-like design that goes well with Japanese tableware. There are two types of designs in the same series, one with continuous lines that cover the entire surface, and the other with radially scattered polka dots. The polka dot version is relatively rare.

The series name filigree refers to filigree work, a technique in which gold or silver is applied on thin threads and painted with gold or silver. At first glance it looks like a black pattern, but the polka dot pattern shines with a silvery sheen to the light. The backstamp is similarly painted in silver.

This work was manufactured only for one year in 1951. I don't know the exact reason, but at that time there were many series of excellent ceramics in Gustavsberg that were discontinued after a few years. It is believed that this piece was made quite thinly, so it was likely that there were many burnouts and damages during the production process, and it is thought that the production did not continue because the time and effort of applying silverwork was not worth the cost. increase. It is a collector's item with extremely few opportunities to see in its own country Sweden.

About Stig Lindberg

Stig Lindberg (1916-1982)

Lindberg was born in Umeå, a central city in northern Sweden. Art University Konstfack in Stockholm ( Konstfack) to learn painting. In 1937, he joined Gustavsberg and studied under his teacher, Wilhelm Koge, and 12 years later, in 1949, he succeeded Koge as the company's art director. Since then, Lindberg has released numerous works as a standard-bearer of Swedish modernism in the middle of the 20th century. The Gustavsberg workshop reached its heyday in the era when Lindberg was active, and even now the works of that time are recognized as the golden age called "mid-century" and have high value. Lindberg's studio was called G-Studion, and young painters were showing great skill. Lindberg retired in 1980 and opened a workshop in Italy where he retired, but died there two years later.
