Flygsfors Flamingo designer
« on: August 30, 2007, 12:45:33 PM »
I have a few pieces of Flamingo and was wondering if anyone knows who designed it? I know most of the pieces are dated after Kedelv left but I do own one piece signed Flygfors-52 and Flamingo.

Hi Level,

As far as I am aware, these were also designed by Paul Kedelv, though not as common as the Coquille series.
Enjoying being in the Midlands.......some people are just amazing....

Paul Kedelv was a desiger at Flygsfors from 1949 - 1956

It is my understanding he designed the Flamingo series.

Thanks for the replies. Are there any examples of a Flamingo piece signed Kedelv?

It's always been my understanding that the Flamingo range was a collaboration between Paul Kedelv and Wiktor Berndt which was why the range never carried either name.

The piece I have dated '52 would have been made before Berndt was at Flygsfors though.

Could it be 62 ? I've seen two with dates in the '60s - both were long narrow bowls in swirled green (light and dark) and red.

Definitely 52, its a small green dish with red and white squiggly lines. I'll see if I can post a picture.

Yep,

I rechecked my database and a bowl of this design was on Tradera last year, signed Flygsfors - 50 Flamingo. (don't know why I didn't see it last time !).
That blows my theory then.

I am curious as to why none of the Flamingo pieces have a designer signature.
