My collection of Josef ekberg signed plates, they only measure 7cm in width and have an amazing iridescent finish which doesn't show up so well in theses pictures.

This little sucker (RIGHT) was on EB and listed correctly but was extremely dirty. The photos don't really show how grubby it is. These are the before photos along side a Pungo vase I have had for several years (LEFT). Both designed by SL and made by gustavsberg in the 60s? - Freeforms calls this one a "Veckla" bowl with matte white glaze, 1960s.

Soaking in the tub as we speak - fingers crossed as it only costs a fraction of it's worth. Very hard to find, most I see are down for crazy money BIN or are damaged. ANY damage is a big no no with such a perfect form and I would leave well alone.

It is enlightening to juxtapose "Fine Art" to "Modern Art"
