    Dear sirs
    I live in Spain and found a pitcher or jug from the Gefle Porcelain factory in a bar boot sale
    The markings are Gefle – 959 – 26 ( Mollbar ) and I believe the potter was Ruben Wallstrom.1943/7
    It is my wife’s birthday soon and as she comes from Upsala I would like to give it to her with all the documentation as a present, I do not think it has any great value but could you advise
    The pitcher is perfect no chips or cracks
    Is there a specialist web site for this pottery and maker if I am rite
    Yours sincerely
    Mr R Norden

    PS how a pitcher come jug ends up in Tapas Bar in Spain is an even bigger mystery ??
