    vetraio50
    (738 items)

    Vase bought on Sunday at the Wenty March from the same dealer who sold me the other Tan'si vase in January this year. You never know, the others may soon appear too.

    It is marked Orrefors NU 3300/5.
    Nils Landberg.
    I think it dates to the early 1950's.
    It seems the Tan'si series appears in the 1954 catalogue.

    I still have no idea about the meaning of name of the series.
    Perhaps it has Chinese references?

    Height: 10.2 ins (26cm)

    Nils Landberg (Swedish, 1907-1991)

    "Nils Landberg studied at the Konstindustrieskolen in Gotenborg from 1923 to 1925 and then trained at the newly established school of engraving at the Orrefors Glasbruk for two years, with his compatriot Sven Palmqvist. Landberg subsequently studied in Italy and France before returning to Sweden, where he began working under Edward Hald (1883-1980) as an assistant and engraver at Orrefors.

    Around 1935, he began creating his own designs for the company and became a member of its in-house design team. His engraved glassware from this period was shown at both the 1937 Paris "Exposition Internationale des Arts et Techniques dans la Vie Moderne" and the 1939 New York World's Fair.

    During the 1950s, Landberg experimented with abstracted and attenuated forms using either clear or delicately tinted glass. In these pieces, he pushed the medium's tensile strength to its limits, giving the designs a powerful inner tension.

    Landberg's famous "Tulipanglas" (1957) with its slender waist was blown as a single piece and received a gold medal at the Milan XI Triennale in 1957. He also designed tableware and lighting as well as decorative doors and windows.

    Landberg retired from Orrefors in 1972, and fourteen years later the Orrefors Museum held a retrospective exhibition of his work."

      The little bloke is a little Australian Disney character by MCP.
      http://disneymcp.blogspot.com.au


      He makes appearances!

      He has a larger relative too that made an even earlier appearance here on CW with an Eric Hoglund bowl.

      Modern Ceramic Products (MCP) had its origins in 1944 when Dora Minchin needed additional kiln space to fire her pottery. From there it grew in to larger premises at Clarence St, Sydney, then on to Redfern St, Redfern for the next 12 years before relocating to Peakhurst in 1958. By 1961 they had moved to Doonside.

      There was only 3 different sizes?
    23. vetraio50 vetraio50, 9 years ago
      I think there were six in the series. Each a different shape. One of them is a bowl looking form. I've seen differing heights too.
