Bequest of Henry Hunt Clark 1966.512
The designer, Simon Gate, created this understated and unadorned bowl at a point in his career when he was best known for vases with engraved figures.
This bowl features an undulating surface with four corners on a black base, a design Simon Gate initially created to compete at the Stockholm Exhibition of 1930. The popularity of the sleek and minimalist design prompted Gate to design a variety of bowls in different sizes and widths to sell at Orrefors that same year.
