Stunning design titled "fagel" / "bird" by the renowned Swedish artist Lisa Larson. A dark blue glossy glaze with dark pine green (similar to petrol blue) on the bead-like decorations and centre of leaf-shaped wing. The legs, eye and decorations around the wing are almost black with a touch of dark pine green. The cream and dark brown background areas (such as the face, tail and edges) have a matt finish and slightly textured surface. 27cm wide x 16cm tall and 3cm deep.
Vintage item in EXCELLENT CONDITION. No chips, cracks, scuff marks or unpleasant odours. Soft glaze crazing to the pine green glaze on the wing (which is a natural part of the ageing process of high gloss glazes) with a small cluster of glaze bubbles. The glaze bubbles occurred during the manufacturing process while the glaze was solidifying in the kiln (see second photo).
Please note: this normal small glaze imperfection has been reflected in the price. Minor manufacturing flaw (very shallow indentation) on the back which is not visible when on display (see last two photos).
The back is also fitted with a strong and secure wire - it's likely it's been there since it was manufactured. Please note: the bird is more beautiful in real life. I will try to rephotograph it soon to see if they can be improved. Depending on the weight and value of the items.

I carefully inspect all items for sale and strive to make my photos as accurate as possible both in terms of colour, tone and condition.However, the true colour of glazes or general appearance of items may vary slightly to photographs (which can never be 100% accurate). All vintage items are "used" items so may show signs of wear on the base of the object (or back of wall plaques). "Excellent condition" generally means no damage and no obvious or noticeable signs of wear.
"Very good condition" means no damage but has some noticeable minor signs of wear, even if this is mainly when viewed up close but is not noticeable when the item is viewed on display. For the most noticeable signs of wear, I will try to be as descriptive as possible (unlike most sellers) to avoid disappointment when the item arrives.
However, please bear in mind that I have a tendency to be pedantic and over-scrupulous so please do not be put off by my detailed descriptions of imperfections or signs of wear! When I show close-up photos of scuff marks or other imperfections (such as glaze crazing or manufacturing flaws), they tend to look worse / more prominent than to the eye (in person), so please also bear this in mind.Regardless of condition, hand made vintage ceramics can often have marks to the base (or back of wall plaques) either from wear or from the manufacturing process (such as scuff marks or indentations / small chips) which I do not consider imperfections or damage, unless it is visible when the item is on display or if it affects the stability or function of the item.
