A set of six funky dessert plates by ceramist Turi Gramstad Oliver for Figgio Flint Norway in the Corsica pattern with a matching platter are among an extensive range of ceramics on offer.
A distinctly quirky number is a large hand-painted 'head' vase and cover by Danish artist Bjorn Wiinblad. His work features in museum collections around the world including Victoria and Albert Museum and MOMA in New York.
The vase on sale at Greenslade Taylor Hunt has a monogrammed signature and is dated ’70 to the base. It is guided at £100-£150.
Furniture of the period is also well represented with a substantial number of G-Plan examples including a number of models from the increasingly fashionable ‘Fresco’ range.
G-Plan caught onto the demand for Scandi style and in the ‘60s employed a Danish designer to satisfy the demand for Scandinavian design and the G-Plan Danish range was born.
Designer Ib Kofod Larsen was the force behind the Danish range. His pieces are comparatively rare as they were significantly more expensive at the time than other G-Plan furniture.
Greenslade Taylor Hunt has two lots by the designer in the sale at The Octagon Salerooms, East Reach, Taunton, on Thursday, July 5.
One comprises a classic extending dining table with two additional leaves and matching set of four chairs. There is also a Danish range sideboard on offer.
Design aficionados will surely appreciate the timeless appeal of a Howard Keith 'Encore' lounge chair, a 1950s design with the original upholstery, is in the July sale. An example also appears at the Geffrye Museum of the home in London.
A vintage John Piper coffee table by Myer featuring iconic London landmarks including St Paul’s is another striking addition to the sale.
All the lots will be on view on Saturday, June 30 from 9am-12.30pm, and again on Tuesday, July 3, and Wednesday, July 4, from 9am-5.30pm.
The sale takes place on the afternoon of Thursday, July 5, following the conclusion of the monthly antiques sale. For more information please contact the saleroom on 01823 332525.
