The Gustavsberg Porcelain Factory was started in 1827 near Stockholm, Sweden and was closed down and sold during the early 1990's.
Lisa Larson, born 1931, is a Swedish ceramic designer who started at Gustavsberg Porcelain Factory in 1953. She was hired by the famous Stig Lindberg who recognized and nurtured her gift for design. The Mid-Century modernist touch is apparent in many of her works. In 1981 she left Gustavsberg to work freelance as a sculptural artist and designer for various Swedish companies and the German porcelain manufacturer Rosenthal.
During this time she created several hundred different designs – many of which have become design classics. Lisa Larson is best known for her humorous and friendly figures, generous shapes and artfully drawn incised decoration. Lotta on a pot, is from her Kid Series which was started in 1961 and was produced from 1962-1979. A delightful depiction of Lotta attired in her dark blue and white striped nightshirt sitting on a medium blue pot decorated with dark blue designs. The figurine measures 6 3/4" in height and is stamped with the factory logo. "Gustavsberg - Sweden - LL". There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint. A great whimsical piece that is guaranteed to make you smile.
