  1. I'll try to add a picture of the bottom soon! Thanks for the loves, everyone.
  2. An extraordinary piece! Do you know where it is from? And what size is it?
  3. Thanks for your kind comment, kyratango!
  4. Thanks, Sean!
  5. You're right, vetraio, it is Dahl-Jensen, not Royal Copenhagen.
  6. Beautiful. When I first saw the thumbnail I thought it was ceramic with a red glaze, but no!
  7. Thanks, everyone, and yes, surfdub, they have lovely autumnal colours!
  8. Thanks, W., that's interesting!
  9. 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...
  10. Surfdub recently posted another one from Rogild with the same type of decoration: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/130657-rogild-danmark
  11. Thanks, yes - it really is quite a cheerful little vase!
  12. What size is it? Larger than a 'normal' egg cup?
  13. 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! :-)
  14. Thanks, surfdub! Also thanks to 'the lovers' !
  15. 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.
  16. PS. Yes, they used the same mark/backstamp 1928-1981...
  17. 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...
  18. Thanks for even more loves and comments!
  19. Thank you all so much for your comments and loves!
  20. I thought that I would add that, sadly, Michael Bang died in 2013...
  21. 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...
  22. Thanks, Sean, austro and aghcollect!
  23. Quite an imposing lady!
  24. So many interesting and exquisite things you have posted recently! You are right; there's something Beardsley about this...
  25. 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...
  26. I have one of these too, although it's a little 'late' for my usual taste, but the blue is just so gorgeous!
  27. 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...
  28. Thanks, maryh1956, and also Amber, surf, austro, and VioletOrange!
  29. 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...
  30. Thanks for the appreciation, everybody!
  31. Amazing glaze!
  32. So do I - thanks Sean and surfdub (and thanks for the loves, too)
  33. 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: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/126996-two-vas...
  34. Yes, it reads '25 years with PENTA' (which in itself means 'five')...
  35. Thank you, Sean, for the comments and thank as well to the rest of you for loving this!
  36. Thanks, everyone, for the loves and kind comments!
  37. There's a van Briggle 'dating guide' here: http://artusvanbriggle.com/van_briggle_marks
  38. And here's another one: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Piatto_ceramica_umbra.jpg The text on the banners often seems to be proverbs of some sort. Could it be from the 19th century, Paolo Ru...
  39. I have no need for suspense novels when I can just follow posts like this! :-)
  40. I'll look forward to that, vetraio!
  41. Thanks for the comment, racer - and all the loves and likes from the rest of you!
  42. Here's a link to a (Danish) article with a picture of MA pottery, including a dragonfly bowl very similar to yours...: http://www.melfarposten.dk/Melfar-Posten/Ny-og-gammel-keramik/artikel/956075
  43. I haven't, no, but practically all Danes know it because of a Christmas TV series which was filmed there!
  44. What a find! The castle is from the mid-1500's - here's the wiki page (in Danish, but you can see how lovely it is even today!): vhttp://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosenholm_Slot
  45. Hi again - just checked various book on Kähler. It is very likely that your vase was designed by Nils Kähler (1906-1979; 4th generation at Kähler) and the decor developed in collaboration with Julie K...
  46. Many thanks, moonstone, Violet, agh, vetraio and geo!
  47. Oh, they are lovely!
  48. I'll look forward to seeing your new vases!
  49. Thanks everybody - I love them too and can't help buying them when I see one that's not too expensive (which is often the case), so I wonder how many I'll end up with!
  50. So delicate!
