Pewter Charger with Surfacing Fish
Stylish charger or bowl from Schreuder & Olsson of Stockholm, showing their mark on the reverse together with ‘gjutet tenn’ for pewter.
Depicting all around the full width of the rim a shoal of fish – possibly salmon – swimming and surfacing in a swirling current. Little whirlpools appear at each of the eight angles at the edges of the rim.
Dating from the 1930’s and signed verso by the designer Olof Ahlberg.
Measuring a touch over 37 cm in diameter, the centre of the bowl has developed an attractive coppery-bronze patina over the years.
