Sven Palmqvist Ravenna

 Two large bowls by Sven Palmqvist for Orrefors. The technique he developed in 1948 was named "Ravenna" after the Italian coast city where Palmqvist became fascinated by the early Byzantine mosaics illuminated on the walls of the Mausoleum Galla Placidia: "I saw not walls but coloured air".  We're happy to have sold these to an important private collection.
