I bought this today thinking it was a Stig Lindberg design but I can't find another example on the web?

definitely part of Stig Lindberg Karneval range. One of three designs in this shape and style. Is there a painter's mark on the bottom - might be possible to identify it.

sorry Dan, can't quite make that one out - it's very out of focus. I can't find an exact match but could be painted by Arne Sandstrom. I will check it out.

we have bits of Stig Lindberg pottery and designs scattered around the forum,why not have a thread especially for his work?
It might encourage people to post more lovely pics...

Gustavsberg (Sweden) - Page 2 Empty 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.

just picked up some pieces of original Bersa by Stig Lindberg, 1960. I like the graphic simplicity of this pattern but I am constantly amazed at the prices it gets.
It should be cheaper than his hand painted pieces but the more iconic shapes or ones that show a lot of pattern seem to just take off on ebay.

I have already blanked it from my mind and I just enjoy them now. 90mm wide x 130mm long. Gustavsberg (Sweden) - Page 2 847164

....you probably didn't pay way too much as these pieces are going up and up in value as they are getting harder to find in good condition. Have a browse through ebay - there is very little Stig and most of the pieces coming up are chipped cracked or restored. If you paid top dollar, enjoy, they will be worth a lot more in a year! BTW - I don't think they are ashtrays, they are more likely to be little hors d'ouvres dishes. Gustavsberg (Sweden) - Page 2 Img_2810

Very nice kirk ,,,,, next question one has a little red 6 pointed star and one a little three pointed yellow crown. I assume these are the marks of the artist who decorated them?

The colour is insignificant unless the StigL mark is in red (which is said to mean he painted it as a test design). The 6 pointed star is the painter mark of Giovanni Pugno and the 3 pointed crown is most likely the mark of Karin Gustavsson

Kirk.  TYVM indeed you are a star. I have one more question - a collectors question; does the pattern matter and does the artist matter with these factory pieces? Are some patterns and artists more collectable than others? More desired? Do you have favourites?

.....mmmmm. Well, that is really down to personal taste. As a general rule, the brighter, more graphic patterns are best, but there is so little of it surfacing at the moment that you will rarely be confronted with a choice. The only pattern that I have noticed being more desirable and getting higher prices would be the "Spectrum Leaf" (like the 2 lidded gourds I posted on this thread), I think that maybe down to the colourful design but also the time consuming nature of painting a big piece meant not so much of it was produced. It also helps that the large lidded gourd in Spectrum Leaf is the piece on show in the V&A!

I picked up these two Gustavsberg plates which I assume are an annual limited edition type issue and hoping that someone may recognise the signature. Thanks John
