Large, thinly potted stoneware bowl with hare´s fur glaze in shades of brown, olive green and orange. Created by Gunnar Nylund for Swedish ALP / Aktiebolaget Lidköpings Porslinsfabrik. ALP took over the factory and name of the Rörstrand factory in the 1930’s and by that time used the three impressed asterisks that are to be found on this bowl, the same used for the Art Déco Flambé series that Nylund created for ALP. This bowl is a forerunner, an example of the modernist and still classical shapes and glazes that he was to excel in during his coming years at Rörstrand, with a reverence to early Japanese and Chinese ceramics. Diameter "7 / 18.2 cm, height "3 ½ / 9 cm. Condition: minor scratch marks to one side (cf. pics).
