This is an attractive mid-century bowl made at the Abbednaes Pottery in Denmark.
The pottery is a small one located in Dianalund to the west of Copenhagen.
It was originally owned by Kurt Olsen who purchased the business in 1952 and gave it the name Abbednaes Potteri.
Olsen was an excellent teacher and had many students who went on to start up their own potteries.
Abbednaes is now run by Annegrete Rasmussen who came to work with Kurt from High School in the later 1990s. She produces a range of domestic pottery items with lovely decorative patterns.
My dish has the impressed Abbednaes Potteri mark on the base, as photographed.
The bowl has a pale terracotta base colour and the interior has a slip glaze decoration with glossy glazes picking out a decorative geometric pattern.
The bowl is just over 8 inches in diameter - and the height of the bowl is just under two inches.
It is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks.
These vintage pieces of art pottery are now getting harder to source - and it is certainly a fabulous decorative piece for your Scandi-modern interior.
