Gustavsberg Prunus Vintage Eggcup
Gustavsberg Prunus Vintage Eggcup
This is a vintage egg cup from the Prunus series from the famous Swedish kiln Gustavsberg. The egg cup of the Prunus series has been reprinted in a conical shape, but this product, which was made in the mid-20th century, which is called the mid-century period, had a cylindrical shape. The reprint version is made of porcelain, but this vintage version is made of ceramic and has a soft texture.
