Large 1950s Rörstrand Bowl

R680.00 R408.00

This is a spectacular piece of pottery! Designed in 1952 by Carl-Harry Stålhane for Swedish porcelain manufacturer, Rörstrand, this generously proportioned bowl forms part of their ‘California’ series. Rörstrand is a very collectible name, but even so I was surprised at how much this bowl sells for – I could only find one example of this exact bowl for sale, and it’s going for a whopping $380 (R5200)! That’s a good few pennies! There are other much smaller California pieces for sale online, and even those tend to go for a couple of thousand Rands.

So while this isn’t the cheapest piece of pottery we’ve had for sale on Mint, at just over 10% of its retail value, it’s a pretty great investment buy!

P.S. Overall the bowl is in very good nick, although it does have a few minor scratches. Also please pay attention to the dimensions below – I don’t think the photos reflect how large this bowl really is!

Dimensions: 52cm long x 21cm wide x 10cm tall
