About Artist: Gustavsberg was set up outside Stockholm,

The firm had success in the nineteenth century making china in the style of
English creamware.Wilhelm Kåge, an artist and potter who studied under Henri
Matisse, joined the company in 1917. He later became artistic director and took
the company in a new direction. He is known for his stoneware and porcelain
one-off pieces, his designs for tableware and his Farsta and Farstarust glazes
- copper and iron oxide, respectively. Kåge stayed with Gustavsberg until 1949
when he was succeeded by Stig Lindberg who had been a designer there for some
time. Lindberg was responsible for the experimental studio set up in 1942 to
develop new designs for production.
