This beautiful pair of rare Midcentury modern platters designed by Gotte Augustsson for Ruda Glasbruk Sweden; references abstraction, like vorticism in the UK, and the industrial processes of Modernism. Heavily textured they are powerful piece of Scandinavian modernist design - one is a plan platter, the other is a divided plate (with 3 sections).

A dramatic pairing of two presentation pieces in hallway, or living space.
