■Product Description This is a vintage bowl-shaped bowl from Gustavsberg's standard series Bersa. The designer is Swedish master Stig Lindberg. Lindberg created this leaf design in 1961. Bersa (Berså; besho, bell show) means an arbour, and is a space set up to take a rest in a corner of a park. In Scandinavia, where there are many winter days, it has a warm design that allows you to feel the fresh greenery. It is no exaggeration to say that half of the year in Northern Europe is winter. Not only is it extremely cold, but in winter there are only four to five hours of sunshine. The characteristic of Scandinavian tableware is that it is full of designs that make you feel warm even on such a winter day. The lush green of the leaves is used to bring fresh green color to the dining table.

Many vintage Versa bowls are cylindrical, and this bowl type is rare. The reprint has a round bowl, but only the inside is painted, and the outside has no leaf pattern. The bowl-shaped bowl comes in three sizes: large, medium, and small (17.5 cm, 15 cm, and 12 cm), and the 17.5 cm size is the largest size sold. Large ones are difficult to obtain because the number of sales was small.

About three spots of paint loss can be seen on the side, but the paint loss is relatively small among Versa vintage bowls. Since there are few cutlery marks on the inner bottom, it was rarely used. Black stains can be seen under the glaze around the bottom. You can also see black threads on the edges as well. All are caused by the manufacturing process.

About Stig Lindberg

Stig Lindberg (1916-1982)

Lindberg was born in Umeå, a central city in northern Sweden. Studied painting at Konstfack, Stockholm. 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.
