About

Remarkably pristine and beautiful, this blue teardrop bowl was designed by Stig Lindberg for Gustavsberg. Created in the late 1950s-early 1960s, it's in stunning shape for its age.

Stig Lindberg was a Swedish ceramic designer, glass designer, textile designer, Industrial designer, painter, and illustrator.
1962 Gold Medal at the First International Ceramics Festival in Prague.
One of Sweden's most important postwar designers, Lindberg created whimsical studio ceramics and graceful tableware lines during a long career with the Gustavsberg pottery factory.
Stig Lindberg studied painting at the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design. In 1937, he went to work at Gustavsberg under Wilhelm Kage. In 1949, he was named Kage's successor as art director.
From this period until he left Gustavsberg in 1980, he designed individual ceramic items, as well as factory produced ranges and lines of dinnerware. He achieved fame for his eccentric forms and whimsical decoration.

This bowl ships from Denver, Colorado.
