Friday Fun

Many years ago my grandma started collecting Rolf Berg tomtes.  I inherited her collection, and have added to it over the years.  Rolf Berg has a studio and shop in Torshälla, Sweden.  Nearly all of his pieces are marked with a stylized RB on the base, and many have a sticker with his name, and "Torshälla, Sweden."  His older work has a definite hand-made quality with angular lines by the eyes that appear hand-carved, while more recent pieces are much smoother.  I certainly love them all, though.
