    A bowl/vase signed "Strömbergshyttan G. Nylund Unik", only made in one piece. I have seen another bowl with similar shape, but with straight edge, decorated in a pattern of bulrushes (see the last photo, from a booklet published for a retrospective exhibition of Nylund 1973-74). But the one I show here appears having a flared edge. The bowl/vase is 17 cm high and 25 cm wide. The photo in the booklet looks to be from the 1950s. This may indicate that even this one is a creation from the same period, not later than 1960?

      A very beautiful bowl, REBESSIN. Are they maple leaves?
      When I looked at the other bowl in photo 4 I thought maybe it too had a flared edge?

      Can't say what leaves it is? Also hard to say if the edge is flared in the other one, maybe you're right in your observation? Regardless, it is beautiful with the decoration of leaves too. But the bulrushes slamming probably a little higher...
