The Baca series, introduced by Aluminia/Royal Copenhagen in 1964, was hugely popular in its time and its popularity continues today on the resale market. Nils Thorsson designed most of the shapes for this range, and the group of Artists and Designers under him each designed their own patterns and motifs – Berte Jessen, Marianne Johnson, Ellen Malmer, Kari Christensen, Beth Breyen and Grete Helland-Hansen, Johanne Gerber, Anne Marie Trolle and Ivan Weiss. This vase by Gerber has a textured surface and a pattern of birds and flora.
