  1. 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...
  2. Thanks, Sean, austro and aghcollect!
  3. Quite an imposing lady!
  4. So many interesting and exquisite things you have posted recently! You are right; there's something Beardsley about this...
  5. 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...
  6. I have one of these too, although it's a little 'late' for my usual taste, but the blue is just so gorgeous!
  7. 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...
  8. Thanks, maryh1956, and also Amber, surf, austro, and VioletOrange!
  9. 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...
  10. Thanks for the appreciation, everybody!
  11. Amazing glaze!
  12. So do I - thanks Sean and surfdub (and thanks for the loves, too)
  13. 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:
  14. Yes, it reads '25 years with PENTA' (which in itself means 'five')...
  15. Thank you, Sean, for the comments and thank as well to the rest of you for loving this!
  16. Thanks, everyone, for the loves and kind comments!
  17. There's a van Briggle 'dating guide' here:
  18. And here's another one: The text on the banners often seems to be proverbs of some sort. Could it be from the 19th century, Paolo Ru...
  19. I have no need for suspense novels when I can just follow posts like this! :-)
  20. I'll look forward to that, vetraio!
  21. Thanks for the comment, racer - and all the loves and likes from the rest of you!
  22. Here's a link to a (Danish) article with a picture of MA pottery, including a dragonfly bowl very similar to yours...:
  23. I haven't, no, but practically all Danes know it because of a Christmas TV series which was filmed there!
  24. 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!): v
  25. 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...
  26. Many thanks, moonstone, Violet, agh, vetraio and geo!
  27. Oh, they are lovely!
  28. I'll look forward to seeing your new vases!
  29. 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!
  30. So delicate!
  31. I really appreciate the stories you can tell about each of your objects!
  32. Thanks, everybody!
  33. It looks very much like Michael Andersen!
  34. Do you have a picture of the back? That might help identifying the chair
  35. There are two on auction here (in Denmark) at the moment, in leather, though - (= more expensive) - but they are both valued at USD 9000...
  36. Thanks Sean - I don't know how I should feel about creating a new addiction! :-)
  37. I note with interest that this has the same number as the one I've posted (148) - different decor, though!
  38. I agree with vetraio (about the upholstering). These chairs are more popular than ever, especially if they are original.
  39. Thanks, Sean!
  40. And thanks, surfdub and vetraio!
  41. Haha, yes, we're just so eager!
  42. Perhaps this page will help?
  43. I don't think there's a great interest in these things here (if collectors are interested in anything but Danish or Swedish pottery or glass from that period, it's French), but I do come across early ...
  44. I found a Fritz Krug vase with the same shape as yours (different glaze)! I've just posted it.
  45. There appears to be a company called Norsk Tinn ('Norwegian Pewter') making these even today. According to their website the company got the name on 2013 when Arne Haugrud (est. in 1940) and another c...
  46. PS. There is also some American Depression glass (Moderntone, 1934-1942) which looks very much like this - I have four little Moderntone custard cups in blue. Apparently this kind of design was fashio...
  47. I have quite a a lot of this - I can't help buying it as I find it quite charming, even though it was just meant for daily use! The coloured type (especially the green) is quite popular and some items...
  48. Congrats, Sean! Yes, I have seen some very large ones from time to time - they were made in many different sizes and shapes!
  49. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of them, but perhaps I should take some in my next 'photo session'. I have them in green, cobalt blue, light blue, grey, red, amber, yellow, and milky white. Th...
  50. What an interesting piece!
