Gustavsberg Malva Teapot

Gustavsberg Malva Teapot

Sale Sold out
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

A teapot from the Malva series produced in the 1980s by Gustavsberg, a long-established Nordic pottery maker. The series name Marva is a perennial plant called mallow or malva, which originally has purple flowers. Designer Wörquist boldly designed the petals in red to imitate the petals. The handle is made of rattan and has an oriental atmosphere.

It is quite difficult to arrange the evenly arranged floral patterns in a way that does not look childish, but it is a simple and sophisticated work that is typical of Scandinavian modernity with a wonderful arrangement of deformed red flowers. It seems that the number of production of this work was quite small, and it is a valuable thing that there is almost no opportunity to see even in Sweden.

There are fine scratches on the base and paint loss in one place on the lid, but overall there are no cracks or chips, and it is in a beautiful condition that retains the appearance at the time of manufacture.
