I would like to know if you think these bird like cups and carafe are Scandinavian and if anyone knows who by?
I've spent a time trawling the web with no luck.
I appeal to your wealth of knowledge!

Interesting. The glaze does not look particularly Scandinavian. While nicely modernist looking they do look fairly impractical. Strikes me they might well be a carafe and mugs rather than a set of jugs, which would necessarily be easy to use. So probably not mass produced. A smaller pottery or a Studio potter? Now of course that is where it gets complicated. If they are a trial form they could be by virtually any competent potter looking for different markets. Certainly they are unusual in design and form and would display well.
