  1. That elephant looks so cheery!
  2. Yes, I too thought of Carl Fischer/BKW, so perhaps... And thanks, VioletOrange!
  3. Thanks wksgibson and vetraio!
  4. I've seen one with bees, meant for honey!
  5. Hi Getthatmonkeyoutofme - I have now added a picture of the bottom (better late than never...)
  6. Just curious - where in Sweden are the flea markets with things like this? I think I might have to go there! :-)
  7. It really is, Sean, and thanks. These copies are not unusual to come across here, but most of them are made of gypsum and this (in biscuit ware) is much nicer!
  8. It means "Heinich, be clear (= clever), stay a bachelor" !
  9. Gorgeous!
  10. :-), thanks, racer - yes, my grandfather was a little irreverent...!
  11. Yes, the dimensions are there - but you're right; it must be a goblet!
  12. I think it is a bowl, possibly a so-called 'sugar dish', meant for sugar lumps. Gundorph Albertus (1887-1970) won the gold medal at the World's Fair in 1925. His most famous design is 'Cactus', but th...
  13. Oh, lovely drip glaze! I've been looking at some of his pieces on ebay from time to time - maybe one day...
  14. Hi Sean - it's not a letter opener, but an orange peeler, it seems!
  15. Or maybe French...? How frustrating with that chip!
  16. I'll try to add a picture of the bottom soon! Thanks for the loves, everyone.
  17. Thanks for your kind comment, kyratango!
  18. Thanks, Sean!
  19. You're right, vetraio, it is Dahl-Jensen, not Royal Copenhagen.
  20. Beautiful. When I first saw the thumbnail I thought it was ceramic with a red glaze, but no!
  21. Thanks, everyone, and yes, surfdub, they have lovely autumnal colours!
  22. Thanks, W., that's interesting!
  23. You're right - it is really heard to find anything about this pottery! Apparently Røgilds Lervarefabrik ('Roegild Pottery') was established in 1837 in a hamlet near Aalborg in Northern Denmark and clo...
  24. Thanks, yes - it really is quite a cheerful little vase!
  25. What size is it? Larger than a 'normal' egg cup?
  26. GASP - this makes me consider buying all the Arabia vases I see here on flea markets and emigrate to the US, living off them for years! :-)
  27. Thanks, surfdub! Also thanks to 'the lovers' !
  28. Haha - thanks, austro, I know the feeling of thinking 'this must be so-and-so's new post!'. And thanks, Sean - German is a possibility, I guess.
  29. PS. Yes, they used the same mark/backstamp 1928-1981...
  30. I think Dahl-Jensen used the same mark for a long period, making it hard to date things like this - if I come across the Dahl-Jensen book in the library some time soon, I'll see if there is informatio...
  31. Thanks for even more loves and comments!
  32. Thank you all so much for your comments and loves!
  33. I thought that I would add that, sadly, Michael Bang died in 2013...
  34. Thanks, cogito - in some strange way it reminds me of the Lion vase you posted recently although the shapes and colours are very different. But they are both very simple, almost restrained, using just...
  35. Thanks, Sean, austro and aghcollect!
  36. Quite an imposing lady!
  37. So many interesting and exquisite things you have posted recently! You are right; there's something Beardsley about this...
  38. In my little MA book it says that Marianne Starck was from Northern Germany and started working for MA in 1955 - from 1975 she was responsible not only for the artistic line, but also for the technica...
  39. I have one of these too, although it's a little 'late' for my usual taste, but the blue is just so gorgeous!
  40. It certainly does look like Royal Copenhagen although I think it's later than Nordström who dies in 1929 and whose work is generally signed with 'PN'. What is the number - to me it looks like 778 - is...
  41. Thanks, maryh1956, and also Amber, surf, austro, and VioletOrange!
  42. Does it have a some sort of mark underneath? If it's an original, it's worth a lot of money, but copies have been made (even a long time ago). It's still a nice chair, but it makes a big difference, p...
  43. Thanks for the appreciation, everybody!
  44. Amazing glaze!
  45. So do I - thanks Sean and surfdub (and thanks for the loves, too)
  46. In case anyone is interested in early 20th-century German pottery, I have now posted two more vases from this small art pottery factory... (here:
  47. Yes, it reads '25 years with PENTA' (which in itself means 'five')...
  48. Thank you, Sean, for the comments and thank as well to the rest of you for loving this!
  49. Thanks, everyone, for the loves and kind comments!
