A strong picasso influence is apparent in this Stig Lindberg design for the 'Piazza' range.

Hiya

Definitely Stig Lindberg.

Don't be fooled by the "hand" mark. This not Stig Lindberg's signature - it only denotes that the piece was handmade. There are many pieces with the hand mark that have nothing to do with Stig Lindberg as the other designer/throwers at Gustavsberg used it too.

Similarly, there are many ranges that Stig designed for Gustavsberg which were cast and don't have a "hand" mark. For example, like the Grazia range, the Reptil, Domino, Veckla and Pungo ranges don't have any Stig related markings on them (although many have stickers with "designed by Stig Lindberg" on the base).

The G + "hand" mark is for Gustavsberg Studio, established by Wilhelm Kåge, who employed Stig L initially as a decorator. Pieces designed by Kåge at the studio bear the G + "hand" in black, those by Stig are in blue. The well known faience pieces with white tin glaze and colourful on glaze decoration were designed by Stig and hand-painted by a small team of decorators each of whom had their own mark or cipher, such as a boomerang, a star, a mushroom etc.
Stig's actual studio ceramics were mostly thrown by Sven Wejsfelt who died quite recently. Stig didn't throw his pieces. These studio ceramics are signed Stig L scratched into the bottom of each piece along with the G + hand mark.
Other series such as Grazia, Reptil, Domino, etc were made at the Gustavsberg factory and are more mass-produced, though some,such as Grazia may have been hand-painted/decorated

two advertisements from a design magazine 1953 for Stig Lindberg and the wonderful Berndt Friberg. They might be of interest to lovers of Scandinavian ceramics...

Oops! Thanks Pip, didn't realise there was a Gustavsberg thread.
I do a "Stig of the Month" post on my blog kirkmodern.blogspot.com to show some of the rare designs. I will post some more soon but here is a nice selection of vases to drool over.

A selection of Stig Lindberg leaf 'salad' bowls. These guys came in two sizes, the large ones being harder to find because they were so easily damaged. Organic curved forms, particularly leaves, were a recurring theme in both shapes and decoration.

This is one of the biggest pieces of Stig Lindberg I have found. The size really gives a great display of the pattern.

Stig Gourds

Post by newpotter on September 7th 2010, 3:05 pm

The Stig lidded gourds are very beautiful, and the "spektralov" design, for me, is the most successful marriage of form and decoration in the series.
Londoners (and visitors to London!) can go and drool at a particularly lovely one in the new ceramics gallery in the V&A, or why not save up £1000 or more and buy one?
Wishful thinking...

It's getting nearly impossible to find nice new pieces of Stig Lindberg, it was exciting to spot this beautiful gourd bowl recently. Painted in graphic dark blue stripes, which really accentuate the curve of this beautiful tactile shape, this piece was painted by Goivanni Pugno in c.1949.

Nice to see the new (March) edition of BBC Homes & Antiques magazine featuring so many mid century retro inspired items, and always good to see a feature on Stig Lindberg. Chosen by Antiques Roadshow expert Will Farmer as the "One To Watch" it is a little behind time on the International market as there has been a lot of 'heat' in his designs for the last couple of years with the hand painted faience ware proving particularly popular in Japan and USA. The price guides are slightly low as I can't remember the last time I came across a piece of Stig for £15, even a piece of Bersa.

....and then there were two!
I have a collection of Stig gourd covered bowls (or onion dishes) but my favourite piece is the large Spektrum gourd. I was always on the lookout for the smaller version to complete the family and.....today it arrived.
