Anyone interested in Scandinavian ceramics should keep a look out for pieces by Upsala Ekeby factory. They had the cream of designers in the mid century period producing a huge range of studio wares that canny collectors are now seeking out and prices are climbing accordingly. I have written about the designs of Hjordis Oldfors couple of months ago but i have just picked up this beautiful 'Pepita' vase by Ingrid Atterberg made in the mid 50s and is my current favourite find.

My favourite design of hers is undoubtedly "Cherokee" (1957) and although I have a full set tucked away, I couldn't resist this recent find of a fabulous organic shaped gravy boat and a set of little two handled bowls. A real gem.
