Hertha Bengtson for Rörstrand Sweden Very Large Chamotte Bowl Scandinavian Mid-century
Very large circular bowl by Hertha Bengtson (1917-1993) for Rörstrand Sweden.
Made ca 1960s.
The bowl has a great rustic look coming from the use of chamotte clay which gives a rough surface.
The outside is unglazed and just has a simple incised stripe decor which draws the thoughts towards stylized plants.
Inside and towards bottom the bowl is covered with a dusty green.
Perfect as a large bowl for fruits or for nuts or whatever you love to put into it ... or to look at just as it is.
