Stig Lindberg for Gustavsberg Ceramic Horse, (Large size, Springare series')
Stig Lindberg (1916-82) was one of the most prominent post-WWII Swedish designers, know primarily for his ceramics and tableware (as well as his work in glass, textiles, and illustration). During a "golden age" of Scandinavian design, at its height in the post-war period, Lindberg represents one of the most successful collaborations between handmade aesthetic and industrial production. This ceramic sculpture was produced in the late 1950s for Gustavsberg as part of their "Springare" line. Made in multiple styles and sizes, this variation is particularly notable as it is of the largest size of Springare horses made, and of the later variation with of horses with the upturned tail while retaining the better-executed black-line-on-white glazework. This piece is in exceptional condition with only one prior owner. It is free of chips, porcelain cracks, or notable production blemishes. If you're looking to add a piece of exceptional midcentury modern sculpture to your collection, but want something that still has an element of handmade whimsy, then this Stig Lindberg horse is an exceptional piece to consider.
