Ebay find!

January 28th, 2009

mushroom

As we mentioned before in the “Love it” section (currently featuring a Kaj Franck fish pot), the mushroom bowl by Kaj Franck has been eluding us for awhile. Ebay shoppers have been driving the price up for months so when John saw this one on for a reasonable buy it now price, he had to jump at it. It’s in near perfect condition and joins a quickly growing collection of the Finnish designer’s illustrated kitchenware.

  2. I paid $45, which is a bit steep for a bowl, but I’ve had my eye on it for a looonngggg time, I just saw one go for $80 on ebay a the other day, so I think I did pretty well…
    I just love Kaj Franck’s illustrations

  4. You did well … these keep getting more and more popular! I have two Finel bowls in different patterns in my personal collection, and I feel lucky to have gotten them under $50 each. Feels steep, true, until you realize how high some of those auctions get …
