This pair of vases from Sweden work well together. Their size and form interest me. How did these guys make such perfect forms in miniature?
Carl-Harry StÃ¥lhane for RÃ¶rstrand is the larger vase. It is 15.5 cm tall = 6.1 ins. It is marked with the R and three crowns, CHS and the model code SOT. The glaze is a matt black/brown combination.
The smaller vase is marked with incised G for Gutavsberg, a hand and Friberg. The glaze is a brown haresfur that blends to a cobalt blue at the base. The hand mark signifies a studio piece. It is a real miniature .... only 5.75 cm high = 2.3 ins.
They both date to the mid 1960's.
