Trio Modern Kokos / Coconuts Vases by Hjordis Oldfors, Upsala-Ekeby, Sweden 1954

About

A set of 3 from the Coconuts Series in which Oldfors created 10 different earthenware vases and bowls. Kokos consisted of mustard yellow glazed interiors in contrast with an unglazed brown clay exterior with carved lines again in the mustard yellow.

Her work can be found in many museums in Sweden. Measurements: Vase 9 3/4 in. high x 8 in. diameter, Lg. bowl 5 1/2 in. h x 8 1/2 in diameter and Sm. bowl 3 1/2 in. h x 5 1/2 in. diameter.
