Hello. We like to collect well-designed vintage pottery (and lots of other stuff) from the 1950s,
'60s and '70s. Here are some pictures and info of a selection of the things we've found.

Elsi Bourelius Jie flower girls from Sweden. Bye-bye ladies.

These stylised figures of flower girls are by Jie of Sweden. They were designed by Elsi Bourelius. There's a hole in the front of the girl for water and a sprig of flowers. I like the simplified unglazed faces and hands in brown clay, even though they have no expressions and no facial features. I would say they were made about the mid-1970s but I'm not sure of that.

Unfortunately, I have to make some room in my cupboards. And, although it was a hard decision, I have to sell these three figures. So it's a sad bye-bye to the lovely flower girls from Sweden.


  1. I've got three of these as well, really love them. I'd find it difficult to get rid of mine! Emma
