If you are not familiar with the site, it is a place well worth looking at to find the best examples of all manner of Fine and Applied Arts and Design.
Of course my favourite items to view are the 20th Century Ceramics - and there often seem to be a few Stig Lindberg pieces come up - here are a few that were recently sold that I would love to have purchased. Hoping one day I come across a piece or two at an Auction hiding in a box :)

Stig Lindberg (1916 - 1982 was a Swedish ceramic designer, glass designer, textile designer, industrial designer, painter, and illustrator.
One of Sweden's most important postwar designers, Lindberg created whimsical studio ceramics and graceful tableware lines during a long career with the Gustavsberg pottery factory. Stig Lindberg studied painting at the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design. In 1937, he went to work at Gustavsberg under Wilhelm Kåge. In 1949, he was named Kåge's successor as art director. From this period until he left Gustavsberg in 1980, he designed individual ceramic items, as well as factory produced ranges and lines of dinnerware. He achieved fame for his eccentric forms and whimsical decoration. .
