Important "Farsta" Vase by Wilhelm Kåge

About

A massive, thick-walled vase made in 1958, by the great Wilhelm Kåge with elaborately carved, asymmetrical decoration. This superb piece was, when finished, so satisfying to its maker that it was withheld from the market and placed directly on display at the Gustavsberg Museum. After many decades in the museum it was acquired by the connoisseur Mark McDonald for his personal collection in New York. This is a very special piece, regarded as something very special by its maker, well-exhibited and with the finest possible provenance. As a prime example of Farsta, Kåge's signature series, it is therefore also a jewel in the crown of 20th century ceramics. Fully marked: Impressed "G (hand) Studio Gustavsberg", Impressed "Farsta" ten times to foot rim. Incised "KÅGE", "Ö". Retains the painted Gustavsberg Museum accession number "7528", and two Gustavsberg Sweden paper stickers. Provenance: Gustavsberg Museum, Sweden; the collection of Mark McDonald.
