Taisto Kaasinen designed this ceramic Viking in 1961 for Upsala Ekeby, a Swedish company, before leaving to work for Arabia in Finland. The viking came in a few sizes, from very small to one over 9 inches tall. The small glass viking has a very similar shape and features and was made by Lindshammar Glasswork in Sweden.
I should really start showing the marks. The ceramic viking has an incised mark with the Upsala Ekeby logo (UE), Sweden, a shape number, and the artist's initials (-TK-). The glass viking has a sticker that says Lindshammar, Sweden, and Handmade.
