Never in the hundreds of argenta pieces I have seen since 1984 have I come across this particular design of a female water carrier. It is a work of substantial artistry, especially the effect of the falling water from an urn. This cylindrical vase measures 7 5/8" tall and is 4 1/2" in diameter. On the underside is impressed HAND DREJAD (this is a hand-made piece), and GUSTAVSBERG with the old anchor insignia, and KÅGE. Painted in silver is ARGENTA, the model number 1076 II, and the painter's initials IF. This is a superior example of the popular Argenta series, and is in mint condition. Museum quality.
