A very busy start to the week for me with a long auction yesterday, followed by a night auction. It was well worth it though as I picked up some absolutely beautiful pieces from the night auction of Mid-Century collectable.
One of the standouts is this Michael Andersen bowl with the Persia glaze, designed by Marianne Starck 1950's or early 1960's.
It is a huge piece - over 40cm in diameter, and even has the original shop label. It has a very small flake on the outside of the bowl which I will get professionally repaired due to the value of the piece, I estimate around $400.
You can read more about the Persia glaze on one of my previous posts HERE, but now I have to spend a few hours unpacking, cleaning and sorting all the pieces I purchased. Tomorrow a guest post from Karen on the story of the Bjorn Wiinblad plaques, which makes for some interesting reading.
