Elle Pottery Norway, Mid 20th Century Large Serving Plate

23 Sep

norway plate

Found at a recent estate sale, this is a beautiful example of Elle Pottery made in Norway. The piece is signed on the back.  Elle Studio produced pottery between 1942 and 1967 in Torkildstranda in Drobak near Oslo. Elle was lead by Tor Samuelssen.  This pottery is now very collectible and  prices are reflecting this interest.

The plate measures over 12 1/2″ and is in very good condition. If you are interested in Mid 20th Century kitchen ware etc., I will be set up at the Carleton Fieldhouse Antique Show on Oct 25th and 26th 2014 in Ottawa, ON where this plate will be for sale.

Priced at $55.00.


Fire King Bowl, Black and Gold Greek Key Pattern, on Warmer

7 Jul


A really nice find!!  In very nice condition, with little wear to the surfaces.  The bowl is by Fire King and it has a gold and black greek key pattern along the top edge. It sits in a candle warmer stand and has a brass coloured metal lid.  This dates to the 1950’s or early 60’s.  There were several artists that designed these patterns for Fire King; Fred Press and Georges Briard  were two that I know of.  This particular bowl is not signed so I can’t attribute it to one of the aforementioned artists.

Please note I do not ship items. This will be availabe in my booth at the Ottawa Antique Show at the Carleton Univertisty Fieldhouse on Oct 25th and 26th 2014.

Priced at $45.00
