Scandinavian talent abounds in art pottery auction, June 15

On Wednesday, June 15, starting at 11 am Eastern time, Jasper52 will present a sale titled Exclusive Art Pottery and More. Consisting of precisely 200 lots, it includes many by known artists and others who, for whatever reason, shied away from signing their works. A significant number of pieces on offer are by Scandinavian ceramicists. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.

Appearing in the sale lineup is a unique earthenware sculpture of a cat by Helge Christoffersen; a complete 32-piece ceramic chess set, rendered in 1980 by Sven Wejsfelt for Gustavsberg; a rugged-looking bluish-glaze stoneware marmalade jar, which was a 1930s collaboration between Hans Hansen and Bode Willumsen; a pair of Art Deco vases by Sevres; a circa-1970s Dorthe Moller large ceramic vase, described as being in “rustic style;” a large matched trio of modern pottery vases; and an Arthur Andersson for Vallakra mid-century monumental vase, which looks for all the world like some sort of rogue vegetable.

Hans Hedberg circa-1960s large kidney-shaped dish, est. $2,000-$2,500
