An exceptional example of Wilhelm Kåge's Argenta series for Gustavsberg. It measures 9 1/4" (23.5 cm) in height and is 6 1/2" (16.5cm) in diameter. On the underside of this four footed urn is painted in silver Gustavsberg, Made in Sweden, the model number, the old Gustavsberg anchor insignia, and the letter Z, which dates this piece to 1956. The original mermaid design for this piece was created in 1954 (see ARGENTA7 in this inventory). Excellent condition.
