Early Graal Experiment

Data: Signed; Orrefors, Hald, 1936. Height; 8.2cm. Birds in blue against a background of clear and red.

Exhibited; As far as I know, not exhibited.

Provenance; Bought at Swedish auction.

The piece. The first properly signed thick Graal, Orrefors is not believed have been produced until 1937. Before that - before Thin Graal was turned into Thick Graal - some experimenting had been done. Such transitional pieces were not signed “Graal”. This is such a piece.
