Blå Råge "Aoi Mugi" is a one-handed pot for ovens produced in the 1950s and 1960s by Gustavsberg, a long-established Swedish tableware manufacturer. It is flat and the surface is hand-painted with blue and turquoise ears of wheat. The milky-white glaze is glossy like milk, and the vivid blue shines well.

Designer Stig Lindberg became Gustavsberg's art director in 1949, succeeding Wilhelm Kage. He is a person who presented a number of works as a standard-bearer of "mid-century", Swedish modernism in the middle of the 20th century. Scandinavian modern is characterized by simple design and sophisticated form. This Aoi Mugi series also has a simple design, but the whiteness of the glaze and the blue hand-painted color are perfectly balanced.

■ Detailed specifications

Manufacturer: Gustavsberg Designer: Stig Lindberg Age: 1953-1962 Country of Origin: Sweden Condition: ★★★☆☆ (3.5: Good)
Cutlery marks can be seen slightly on the surface when the light shines through. On the back of the handle, you can see two places where the underlying soil is exposed. It is not a scratch, but a post mark that is not covered with glaze during the manufacturing process. Since the bottom is unglazed, there are some scratches, but if it is heated, it will turn black, so it is likely that it was used as a decorative plate or serving plate. It is a beautiful product in relatively good condition with no cracks or paint loss.

Stig Lindberg

Stig Lindberg

Stig Lindberg (1916-1982)

Born in Umeå, the central city of northern Sweden. Originally from Stockholm's art school Konstfack ( Learn painting at Konstfack. He joined Gustavsberg in 1937 and gradually rose to prominence under the tutelage of his mentor, Wilhelm Koge. Twelve years later, in 1949, he succeeded Koge as the company's art director in charge of design.

Since then, Lindberg has released numerous works as a standard bearer of Swedish modernism in the mid-20th century. During Lindberg's time, the Gustavsberg workshop was at its peak, and its works from that time are recognized as works from the golden period known as ``mid-century,'' and are highly valued. Lindberg's studio is called G-Studion, where young designers are demonstrating their skills and producing famous artists such as Lisa Larson.
