Some of my favorite things! I like pairs!
This pair I've had for nearly twenty years. The shape is really strong and the colour of the glaze is a lustre over olive and peacock blue. Lustre pottery has been a long-time passion.
The signature on the bottom of the vases includes an R for Rörstrand and CHS for the designer Carl-Harry Stålhane.
I believe that the SPD mark is the name of the design and that they date from the 1950's.
Stålhane is a legendary Swedish art ceramist, with a more than 40 year long career at Rörstrand pottery before he established his own workshop, Designhuset.
They are approx 5 ins high = 13 cm.

    These remind me of some Timo Sarpenava glass that I had .

    Hi! You're right about the iridescence. It's there on both of them but works even more on the green one.

    The form looks to be inspired by classic Chinese "bottle vase" shapes. I was surprised to read these are only 5" tall; they seem to have a more massive presence. The bold monochrome colors are awesome. Overall a remarkable blend of classic form with vibrant, modern color - brilliant!
