  1. It was made after 1917 (shown by the mark), but I am certain that it is an earlier design - it looks very much like other things they made in the early 20th century, so I'd say that it was designed ar...
  2. It's P. Ipsens Enke ('P. Ipsen's Widow) from Denmark! You can read a little bit about the history and marks here:
  3. Oh, I am green with envy!
  4. What an amusing vase - part vase, part sculpture!
  5. Thanks for the loves and the comments!
  6. Thanks, CindyB and aghcollect!
  7. These things are really popular here in Denmark as well!
  8. A somewhat belated Happy New Year to you! I celebrated New Year's in Istanbul and haven't quite been able to keep up with CW since - am now making an honest attempt!
  9. Oh, how pretty they are - I understand why you were tempted! Love the little crown!
  10. It's perfect!
  11. Thanks you so much, surfdub66!
  12. Thanks, vetraio, VioletOrange, bratjdd, and Cormoran!
  13. Thanks for the loves, everyone!
  14. Just to be very pedantic - 'kommen' means 'caraway', not 'cumin' (although the word is the same and they look the same...!). Congrats on your Danish set!
  15. Thanks for the comment, cogito!
  16. I googled 'chocolate crackle' and I see what you mean! Thanks for your comments, Sean and racer4four!
  17. Thanks a lot, SpunkysMom!
  18. It looks very similar to pottery (faience) made in Denmark 1900-1920 - it's not Danish, though. Perhaps German.
  19. And I grew up with it! Still have a few items - it's lovely!
  20. Also looks like faience, not porcelain. Is it light or heavy?
  21. Thanks, cogito, austro and bratjdd!
  22. Thanks, ho2cultcha!
  23. Thanks, racer, and many thanks for your comment!
  24. Thanks Sean and aghcollect!
  25. hi paris1925 - thanks! And thanks, weirdpuckett.
  26. Thanks, racer and Sean - and the rest of the 'lovers' as well!
  27. Tusind tak, vetraio - same to you!
  28. I just looked in the two-volume reference book 'Bunzlauer Keramik' and found your vase which was made in three different sizes (hence the '2'´; 75 is the shape number). It was made with different type...
  29. Actually, I now think it's a bonbonnière (candy dish) as it is similar in size and shape to a silver one I have also posted and which is definitely a candy dish!
  30. Sehr hübsch - I have a fondness for hammered metal!
  31. Poe actually wrote a poem called 'The Raven' - it's as if this figurine was made to illustrate that!
  32. Thanks, vetraio; that's so kind of you!
  33. Et kyratango aussi!
  34. Thanks Sean, aghcollect, and CindB!
  35. So do I, katzl!
  36. Thanks, surfdub! And katherine!
  37. Yes, this one had one too, but unfortunately it is illegible!
  38. Congratulations!
  39. I think the style is traditional, but the vase is not necessarily old, as pottery is still made in this style - but it's still pretty! And yes, ho2cultcha, it was a very interesting vacation as the co...
  40. Thanks, Sean!
  41. Thanks everyone - cogito, your 'dwarf vase' from Höganäs reminded me that I have this one, so I thought I'd better post it!
  42. It's definitely Iranian/Persian - last year I went to Iran on vacation and saw quite a lot of this kind of pottery!
  43. Vases are rarely amusing, but this one is! Fantastic!
  44. Yes, you may be right (about immigrant bringing items with them) - I don't think this pottery was imported and sold in Australia.
  45. It's amazing - a museum piece!
  46. Queen Anne's lace or another plant from the same family?
  47. Yes, it is a little strange, actually. Royal Copenhagen I can understand, but it seems that also lesser known pottery somehow turns up in Australia. Alas, no Australian pottery turns up here!
  48. Yes, Elisabethan is right: Alma Andersen & Søren Klein Rasmussen owned 'Alma Keramik' and the pottery was manufactured at Brack and Sons (Carl Vilhelm Brack) in Taastrup (about 20 km from Copenhagen).
  49. Here's a useful site which also has a gallery - maybe you can find info there:
  50. Perhaps you could post a picture of it? Could be interesting to see!
