A beautiful Rorstrand Swedish art pottery square ashtray. Designed by Carl-Harry Stålhane, this is the 'SRU' design from the ”alphabet bowls and dishes”. Circa 1960s.
Among Nordic pottery collectors, Carl-Harry Stålhane’s Alphabet bowls and dishes are often of great interest. These hand-thrown or molded objects were marked underneath by three letter codes describing their shape. Each model was crafted in a few hundred to a few thousand pieces in the 1950s and 1960s.
A square shallow shape with wide rim with random whiter raised lines on. The colours are a mottled denim blue with dusky browns and whites around the edges. Hand signed to the base with the Rorstrand logo, "Sweden", and Stalhane's initials and the product code "SRU". Apx 17cm x 17cm x 3cm.
Excellent condition - as intended with differences in the glazes and white and brown highlights. It's hard to believe it's of any age. 
Price includes P&P to the UK.
