  1. :-) thanks, antiquerose! (And Radegunder)
  2. Thanks, Sean and VioletOrange, for your comments (and thanks to geo26, ozmarty and vetraio too)!
  3. Thanks, lass - I like it too! I went to the largest biannual antiques market here and one of the regulars had a great deal of this type of pottery, so I was lucky to find some of the more unusual stuff!
  4. Oh, completely wrong then! It only goes to show how little I know about 'late' stuff!
  5. How interesting - I've seen this kind of pottery quite often here in Denmark, so it's probably from Northern Europe - Danish or possibly German or Swedish!
  6. I am sure that this is a depiction of a story from a famous Swedish book by Selma Lagerlöf, "The Wonderful Adventures of Nils Holgersen" (1906-1907). In one of the better known stories from the book t...
  7. Actually, the signature could very well be 'OJ', right? Maybe Otto Jensen commissioned a pottery to deliver vases etc. and then they were sold under his / the shop's name...
  8. Yes, it reads 'Otto Jensen's ...dealer' (probably 'Art dealer'), Bernstorffsgade 4 (address) and then the telephone central Byen '('City') and the phone no. The telephone centrals were discontinued in...
  9. I am really sorry; this signature is not familiar to be. It is definitely not Saxbo, though - and it looks 1950's or may 1960's to me. It appears to have been sold from a shop in central Copenhagen (t...
  10. As far as I can see all the young people received a book as a gift from their priest and in this case a young man named Ludwig Karl (I can't make out the surname) was given this by pastor E.D. Kufel (...
  11. That would be interesting, cogito - thanks!
  12. Thanks, austro! :-)
  13. Thanks for your comments and loves, everybody; I appreciate it!
  14. I think I found it! - it seems to be Scottish (Buchan Portobello FMF) - there's a picture of the mark (the FMF) if you scroll down on this page: http://scottishpottery.weebly.com/east-coast-pottery-ma...
  15. Oh, yes forgot the 'h'! Found this on the net: Mary Frank Gaston’s The Collector’s Encyclopedia of Limoges Porcelain, Second Edition (Collector Books, 1992; 223 pages): “Charles J. Ahrenfeldt was born...
  16. Charles Arenfeldt & Son, 1896-1910, is what comes up when I search...
  17. Thanks, racer!
  18. Thanks, Sean - yes, the glaze is just great! Thanks, all of you.
  19. I can't read the first letter(s), but the rest look to me like '..azelidis'...
  20. I am 99% sure that these letters are Greek!
  21. It could be Ebbe Sadolin who worked there from 1927. In the 1950's he designed stoneware which I find is similar in style to this... Ebbe Sadolin (1900-1982) was a painter, artist, and writer. In 1948...
  22. I have one just like it (found among my grandmother's stuff)! Mine is 'My Sin', though. I've tried in vain to find out more about it, such as the date. Do you know how old it might be?
  23. Interesting! As far as I can see, this is the mark used 1952-1957 and Christian Poulsen worked there before that (1941-1946).
  24. Yes, it's Strehla - here is a little more info: http://www.potsandpots.com/wgp-companies/others/strehla/
  25. My guess is a little earlier than that, but it's difficult to tell. The company was founded in 1952 and started making furniture such as coffee tables in 1955. It still exists, so I guess that if you ...
  26. Hi Sean - you asked in another post if I could identify this candelabra - but, honestly, I have never seen anything resembling it (although I'm not surprised it's Danish)!
  27. I don't know if there is a way to recognize uranium glaze, except that it has this glowing yellow or orange colour, although I suppose not all orange glazes are uranium glazes... Apparently it can be ...
  28. Thanks for your comments - yes, it really is quite whimsical!
  29. Cette pelle à poussière est très belle! I don't think it's Scandinavian, though...
  30. And here is a page (text in Swedish) where you can see the marks and signatures used there: http://www.signaturer.se/Sverige/bo.htm
  31. Sorry, 'here' is in Denmark (Copenhagen). The funny thing is that (apart from many classics by Wegner and others) these things, particularly in teak and other dark types of wood, were not sought after...
  32. I think it was designed around 1960, certainly by Kurt Oestervig for Jason Moebler ('moebler' means 'furniture') in the town of Ringsted (Denmark.). These things are extremely popular here at the mome...
  33. These are the so-called 'annual mugs' made by Royal Copenhagen every year since 1967. They are popular as gifts from e.g. companies to celebrate anniversaries etc., so the silver disc may be used for ...
  34. Thank you all for your appreciation and Gracay and Cogito for your kind comments!
  35. I've been eyeing his pieces for some time - must have one at some point, I think! I like the grey ones too! What are the dimensions of your vase?
  36. Oh, it's beautiful! Imagine living in a time/place where even a mundane letter holder looked like this!
  37. I've unexpectedly come across some more info on Karin Blom in a book about the pottery factory P. Ipsens Enke ('P. Ipsen's Widow', in existence 1843-1955) for which she appears to have worked in the 1...
  38. Interesting info on Otto Lindig; thanks for that, and I agree, cogito, there seems to be a lot of interesting early 20th-century ceramics from Germany, but at times it's really hard to find any useful...
  39. Oh, that's a great piece! I think it dates to the late 1910's (based on the style).
  40. I've posted my little PN vase - just for the sake of comparison!
  41. Yes, I love the colours, too - thanks racer and everybody else. There's a vase at the V&A Museum with the same type of green glaze: http://collections.vam.ac.uk/item/O151640/vase-c-h-brannam/
  42. I've just consulted a work that was published in 2013, 'Japonism in Danish Art and Design' (alas, in Danish), written by a well-renowned art historian. Two vases by Karin Blom are pictured as examples...
  43. They are gorgeous! No 16 in the picasa album was sold on an auction here in Sept. 2013 for DKK 5500 (= USD 1010), but you have probably already seen that. I haven't been able to find much more about h...
  44. I was in the Free Forms store just three days ago in NYC! - they have some incredible stuff there. Your vases are amazing!
  45. Yes, he is a very important figure in Danish ceramics, thanks to his pioneering work with glazes at Royal Copenhagen. PN pottery is seen quite often here (in Denmark) on auctions (rarely on antiques m...
  46. It is a (Danish/Norwegian) hymn book for 'Lutheran Christians in America', published by 'Den Forenede Kirkes Forlag' ('Unified Church Press') in 1895.
  47. Thanks a lot, Sean - and vetraio, ks85, and Gracay2004.
  48. Interesting - I've never seen a Saxbo that wasn't dark brown on the bottom. But the shape and the glaze are just lovely!
  49. Oh, I just bought a vase with exactly the same look (ruby red, etchings of a deer, trees etc.) and have come across quite a few since then. I know very little about this type of glass (I found it in a...
  50. Very interesting pot!
