Wonderful and rare pair of Rosenthal Studio Linie blue candle holder pedestal bowls with design by Bjorn Wiinblad. We've seen a similar coloration and style on the "Brotzeit" line but believe these are not from that line. Great looking, expressive faces utlizing applied clay, with decoration that extends around the side of head. Color is a dark blue, with lighter blue to white drip glaze on the facial features. These would look great in a Wiinblad collection as the features are very typical of his style, but they'd also fit in with other mid century modern design. Marked on the base with a very faint impressed circle Rosenthal mark.
In good condition with no cracks or chips. Some candle wax remaining in places. A manufacturing line on the base of one candleholder that's under the glaze. A small flake on the tip of the nose on the other candleholder. Some pops to glaze here and there, and some very light wear. Base area hole has white residue.
Measures between 7 3/4 and 8 inches tall, 6 inches across the top, 3 1/4 inches across base. Candle holders look like they would fit 1 1/4 inch tapers.
