1, 2 and 5 liters

This beautiful  original blue painted measurments boxes have all the government stamps impress in their wooden sides, dates, crowns all the marks that pedantically born swedish state needed for his own eager of burocracy. Well to decrease flour fraud also i have to say.

Vincent would love it!

Though the wrong French landscape and quite few km. of distance from his last resort, he would have loved this Iris court. Isure did.

Forms, all kind of forms

Probably Höganes, in gypsum, nice different models, i bought them all today, about 30 pair of splendid forms. They were used for pottery making or earthenware.
Great interior decoration.
Quantity matters!

It´s a stool daddy, not a Parmiggiano!

That´s what my little 3 years old daughter said when she saw this cheese monster on the floor!
They are adorable with their true way to say things, in their own little world. She loves Parmiggiano Reggiano, but this hole form looks different that the small pieces she eats.

Anybody interested?

Color Matter

Even when secondary, a nice turn of the century (18/1900) grey color can be really charming. This is nice.

Almost the same

I have just "scraped" a tilt top table that looks like the brother of a popular table i had in the recent past.
I like very much this kind of tables, close to a nice wall they are like a standing useful sculpture.

The swedish model

It´s like a Volvo a classic of the Swedish production, but that is all we can use to compare those items.
This one is just a little bit smoother in his forms than the 4 wheeled. Just like my little sarcasm.
