Cathrineholm Lotus Pot Norway

17 Oct

This colourful enamel ware pot with the Lotus pattern on it is in very good condition, only showing minimal wear.  Grete Prytz Kittlesen  was the woman who designed the line of enamelware  and the pattern was designed by Arne Clausen in the 1960’s for Cathrineholm of Norway.  These are now very collectible and much sought after for both practical and esthetic purposes.  Grouped together in all the colours available, these make a wonderful display.

This item will be available only at the Ottawa Antique and Vintage Market November 4th and 5th, 2017 where I will have a large booth.  I also have a set of 6 of the smallest bowls made by Cathrineholm in the green and white Lotus pattern. The Antique show will be held at the Carleton University Fieldhouse on Bronson Ave. in Ottawa, Ont.

Please note this item is now SOLD!!

Whimsical plaques by Bjorn Wiinblad, a Danish designer, for Nymolle pottery company in Norway in the 60’s or possibly early 70’s.  This is a complete set of 12, one for each month of the year.  All are done in black and white and are in very nice condition.  The surfaces of most of them are crazed slightly, but there is no discolouration or damage.  They have a small hole to thread a ribbon or piece of leather through, so they can be hung for display. They could be  used as trivets as well.  Each measures approx. 6″ in diameter and approx. 1/4″ thick.

These plaques will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON

Catherineholm of Norway, Lotus Enamel Ware Pot by Grete Kittelsen

6 Mar

IMG_7159

Designed by Grete Kittelsen for Catherineholm Co., often called the Queen of Scandinavian Design, ca. 1960’s.  The Catherineholm company takes its name from its hometown in Norway.  There is no actual Catherine Holm. This is the lotus pattern in a beautiful sage green stylised leaf pattern on white.  This pot is missing its metal carrying handle which would have fit in the groove just under the top of the rim.  The pot is in excellent condition.  There are no dents or scratches to the enamel that I could see.  Inside is clean and shiny.

This will be for sale in my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.

Priced at $55.00 Firm
