    The second treasure I found today was this 8" BO Swedish bud vase. New potter to me but think it is quite cool. Oddly it was with the kitchen gadgets.
    You can see a faint BO on the bottom of the vase but it was super hard to photograph. (not to mention that my camera is fading fast)

      Couldn’t find much on the company, but the factory closed in 1967.
      Here’s a translation from the Swedish wikipedia

      Bofajans, or Bo Fajans, ceramics made ??from glazed earthenware Bobergs AB, which was founded in 1874 by industrialist Erik Boberg . To begin with, only produced consumer goods, but from 1910 also artistic, rustic earthenware emphasized. [1]
      Many famous designers such as Allan Ebeling (1922-28), Eva Jancke-Birch (1925 -) Maggie Wibom (1925-33), Ewald Dahlskog (1929 -) and Maud Fredin-Fredholm (1946 -) has over the years been engaged at the factory. Factory (which was in Gävle) was closed in 1967. On the site now lies Lantmäteriets headquarters.

      Wow, Mary, that was really interesting thanks for the information. Really appreciate it.
      Jensen, also a great link. I always like to get the marks burned into my brain.
      Hi Agram, thanks!
