Tilgmans, Sweden: Brutalist Vase with Abstract Glaze
A strongly textured slab vase with sgraffito and multi-coloured glaze in an abstract pattern. Made by Tilgmans of Sweden.
Featuring the dark, heavily grogged chamotte clay so typical of this maker. This type of clay, especially when unglazed, is very fragile and there are quite a few fleabites on this vase to prove it (please see the final four pics for close ups.) These don't really detract from the vase as the texture& glaze are so striking - but they do influence the value to collectors and the price reflects this.
Bears a maker's mark to the base.
20 cm (8") high and and weighing 806g.
Otto, the fellow Scandinavian troll, is for scale only. He is 8 cm (3") tall.
