This is a three-legged pitcher from the famous Swedish kiln Jii Gantofta. Gantofuta is a famous manufacturer of porcelain plates, but in the middle of the 20th century, it also manufactured fixtures in small lots. Plates and spice jars are standard, but this is a rare half unglazed jug. The bottom half of the bowl is bare china clay, and the top and part of the handle are glazed in turquoise blue. It is made in a kanae shape, giving the impression of a chunky magic tool. The weight of the main body is just 1 kg, and the capacity when full of water is about 800 ml. It's designed to be held in one hand, but if you put a lot of water in it, you'll need some strength to handle it.

The designer is Anita Nylund, who was in charge of furniture design at Gantofuta. I think this pitcher was designed in the late 60's. Anita Nylund is the daughter of Swedish potter Gunnar Nylund and a designer of the same age as Lisa Larson. Known for the Janssons frestelse series, which uses ethnic patterns in its designs.

Overall, the rugged texture of the clay is exposed and rough, but the turquoise blue glaze on the chocolate-colored clay is very clear, and it is a vessel made with an excellent sense of color. The Gantofta kiln manufactures ceramic plates in a variety of colors, and you can clearly see that the manufacturer was good at expressing glazes.

Penetration can be seen in the light blue glaze. Intrusions are cracks that run on the glaze surface during firing during manufacturing, and are not damage to the body itself. It is caused by the manufacturing process and has passed the manufacturer's inspection. It is in very good condition as it was when it was manufactured.
