Elle Norsk Bottle Vase
My cousin Nancy gave me this Elle vase for Christmas. I have another vase in this same shape and both have the numbers 927 BS, so I assume that is the shape number. The artist's initial here is "S."
The Elle Keramikk AS studio/factory was located in Drøbak, Norway between 1942 and 1967. I know three of the decorators were Reidar Finsrud, Gun von Wittrock (married name Gunvor Norem), and Einar Basteson, but I haven't been able to match the signatures on any of my pieces of Elle to these names.
