    Another market find a few years back is this little lidded pot part of the Studio-Linie 'Quatre Couleurs' designed by the legendary Danish designer, Bjorn Wiinblad 1918 – 2006 (pronounced Byurn Veenblahd - it seems).

    Wiinblad studied at Copenhagen's Technical High School and the RDA, and at the Lars Syberg Studio, Taastrup.
    He is known for his design skills in not only ceramics but furniture, glass, illustration, theatre, textiles and posters. He has achieved popular acclaim for his work with Nymølle from 1946 to 1956 and Rosenthal in Selb, Bavaria, Germany from 1957 to the late 1970s. His work became popular throughout Europe, Asia and particularly in the United States.
    On the crisp white Rosenthal porcelain ground, the design on the lid of this pill box is of an "oriental" figure walking in a garden, holding a tulip flower in his hand. Spring leaves and flowers adorn the edges of the pill box..

    The underside of the vase is fully marked to the base with the green Rosenthal crown mark, a dot before Germany = 1965 and an overglaze gilt Studio Linie “S” mark . I think there is a gilder’s mark as well as a number for “Quatre Couleurs” 1583. The French term refers to a decorative technique using four types of gold: I think they are green gold, yellow gold, red gold, and ducat gold. The decorative effect is achieved by burnishing the gold as each gold alloy is applied separately by hand.

    The Rosenthal Studio-Line began in the 1950’s. Famous artists and designers Tapio Wirkkala, Otmar Alt, Timo Sarpaneva (and another 150 more) have designed contemporary porcelain sets, unique accessories and porcelain and glass gift articles for the Rosenthal Studio-Line.

    The original Studio Linie slogan: ”Originals of our time”.

      I have a demitasse set called GARLAND ROMANCE in the studio-linie for Rosenthal that sent me on quest for info about maker Bjørn Wiinblad...thank you for sharing this.

      And also have 1979 Weihnachtsteller Rosenthal studio-linie plate Flucht nach Agupten by Bjørn Wiinblad. It’s a very pretty and colorful design of Mary, Jesus and Joseph on a donkey with full moon in background. Signed in gold.

      Hi all, this is a very tardy reply with photos of my 2 items designed by BJORN WIINBLAD. I hope I’m successful at posting the photos on Collectors Weekly for you! Aloha, Marisa

      Sorry, I tried but I’m unable to figure out how to DROP PHOTOS so they show up on the site in Show & Tell. I was able to choose them but how to get them into the box is impossible for me. Frustrating.

      try double clicking them.?.
    15. funtocollectglass funtocollectglass, 9 months ago
      So kind of you all to try to help me, thank you! From your emails I think my problem is I only have an iPhone XR and a MacAir laptop to use so I can’t follow your instructions. No mouse to click with. I should ask my son The Tech Whiz if it’s still possible...Aloha from Hawaii!
    16. vetraio50 vetraio50, 9 months ago
      All OK by me !!!
    17. funtocollectglass funtocollectglass, 9 months ago
      CW members are SO COOL and you boys stepping up to help a “not so smart someone” are the proof! Over and out...
    18. funtocollectglass funtocollectglass, 9 months ago
      I’m sorry keramikos; I should have said “guys” or “people” instead of assuming the advice came from males because of Vetraio50’s picture or masculine-sounding monikers. Guilty as charged. And I have to try to collar the always busy Tech Whiz son sometime today for help with this problem...
