Details and Condition: Sculptural brown glaze vase by Leon Galetto for Saxbo. Marked with the Saxbo yin-yang symbol encircled, “Saxbo Denmark”, an encircled x and “L Galetto". French ceramist Leo Galetto worked at Saxbo for around 1 year around 1954 and this piece is a more unusual shape as he is more known for his cylinder vases with relief triangles on their sides. Saxbo is now widely recognized as one of the finest independent ceramic workshops in Scandinavia with a wide and far ranging influence on several generations of ceramicists. Today, pieces are included in the collections of the Copenhagen Industrial Arts Museum, The Swedish National Museum, the New York Museum of Modern Art and the New York Metropolitan Museum of Arts.
