Gunnar Nylund Dish by Rörstrand

This small dish is our first piece of Gunnar Nylund, found today at a local antique shop (along with several other Scandinavian pieces of ceramics). It's surprisingly heavy and thick-walled, and I love the organic glaze, simple leaf design, and arrowhead shape.

Etched by hand on the bottom are the Rörstrand "R" with three crowns, the artist's initials (GN), Sweden, and the shape number (either ASZ or A5Z).
