|my mod 1950s vase|
My daughter was in from New York this past weekend. One of our favorite traditions is to dig for buried treasure in the Heart of Ohio Antique Center. It's the largest in the Midwest with over 650 dealers and takes a good four hours or so to walk through, even at a quick pace. So Saturday, we hopped aboard the old green Land Rover, accompanied by gorgeous N.C. Wyeth skies.
One of my finds, was a mod little 7 1/2 inch vase. It was stamped UE Sweden on the bottom with a serial number and initials: a juicy story just begging to be investigated. Did I comply? Of course I did.

(I love her quirky Picassoesque style.
Note the chignon.)

An extremely creative artist, her work has been featured in public art displays in Sweden and Copenhagen and is represented in museum collections all throughout Europe.
My little Mari Simmulson 1950s vase? An exact match is online for $200. I paid $14 and consider it a great investment in keeping company with art.
