This charming little stoneware owl is one in a trio designed by Edvard Lindahl for Gustavsberg Sweden in the 1960s. Lindahl (1907-1986 ) was a cartoonist, set designer, illustrator, sculptor and woodcarver. In the 1960's, Lindahl did work for both Rörstrand and Gustavsberg. He made drawings of stoneware for Rörstrand, and his well-known owls made at the Gustavsberg Studio. His art is represented at the National Museum and Malmö and Eskilstuna Museums.
This owl measures 2 1/2" tall x 2-1/2" wide x 2-1/4" deep and is signed on the bottom with the Gustavsberg hand and "E.L." It is in good vintage condition, with no chips or cracks; the only flaw is a few white paint drips on the front of the owl, as documented.
