INTO THE GREEN
Beautiful bronze vases from GAB, made during the 1930s. Patinated into deep green shifting colors that add vivacity to the pure, classic forms. GAB was founded in Stockholm in 1867 and was an important influence on the Swedish art and crafts and industrial design scenes for more than a century. Jakob Ängman, a major reformer of of Swedish silver smithery and an accomplished craftsman, was its creative director from 1907 to 1942. At GAB, he developed a style that combined the unique characteristics of 1920s classism and 1930s functionalism.
