We're excited to be able to offer this incredible piece - a 8.5" tripod bowl from the 'Harmony' range, released in 1957. We believe this was model #440 in the series. It was one from a small series of pieces in the collection. A variety of two-tone colour options were made, including this stunning pink and grey combination.
This piece measures 13.5cm tall x 22cm long x 18.5cm wide. It is in good to great vintage condition with a small amount of surface wear. It has some crazing internally and a little wear on the base of the tripod feet. As a bonus it still has its original paper foil label intact.
An incredible piece - one that fits the bill when it comes to the atomic design of the mid-century era.
