A bowl designed by Mari Simmulson for Upsala Ekeby for the Kaskad range. The bowl has a lusciously smooth deep blue (almost purple) glaze which contrasted by the rough and unglazed centre which is carved with an orange and white sun-like pattern.
The mould number of this bowl (43130) indicates that this designed was produced for Åhlen & Holm , the exclusive Swedish department store. Mari Simmulson originally worked for Gustavsberg in 1944 but moved to Upsala Ekeby in 1948 where she became one of its leading ceramicists.
The bowl has a diametre of 30cm, it is fully marked – with the MS monogram – and retains its original label.
