About this item

This exquisite set of Swedish Modern miniature ceramics are of four hand thrown works by John Andersson (b. 1899 - d. 1969) of Höganäs Keramik and one Swedish studio pottery piece.

Each of these works have been masterfully hand thrown and decorated with careful attention as if the piece is full size. The expert skill used to create these pieces is evident in both the gently exaggerated and thin necks of the vases as well as the variation of glaze decor styles. Creativity and artistry in glaze technique is evident in each piece, from the striated sand on chocolate glaze of the taller, solifleur form vase to the dappled golden yellow on stone glaze of the baluster form vase.
Excellent. No chips, cracks or scratches to any of the pieces - please refer to photos as part of condition report. The underside of each piece is marked as follows:
Vase 1 (Sand / Brown): The underside of the base is marked with John Andersson's inscription of 'AJ Höganäs" of the 'AJ' crossing the 'H'
Vase 2 (Yellow / Stone): The underside of the base is marked with John Andersson's initials of 'JA' and his inscription of 'AJ Höganäs" of the 'AJ' crossing the 'H'
Vase 3 (Glacial Green / Stone): The underside of the base is marked with John Andersson's inscription of 'AJ Höganäs" of the 'AJ' crossing the 'H'
Vase 4 (Tan / Dark Brown): The underside of the base is marked with John Andersson's initials of 'JA' and his inscription of 'AJ Höganäs" of the 'AJ' crossing the 'H'
Mortar and pestle (Red / Blue): The underside of the base is marked 'AJ' and retains original 'HAND-DREJAT' ('hand stoneware') label.
