This is a lovely pair of vintage Scandinavian studio pottery cups and saucers.
Jens Harald Quistgaard (1919 – 2008) was a Danish sculptor and designer, known for his work with “Dansk Designs” where he was their chief designer from 1954 -1984.
Quistgaard’s first produced designs stoneware designs for the Danish Ceramics factory Kronjyden Nissen which had started up in 1937. One of his most celebrated early ceramic designs is “Flamestone”, which was released under the Dansk label and produced by ESLAU Denmark in the 1950s.
This stylish Flamestone design features a highly matte chocolate brown exterior, contrasting with a smooth white gloss glaze for the interior. It has ribbed decoration around the exterior and around the rim of the saucer.
Each piece is marked to the base: IHQ Dansk / Danmark
The cup measures 3 1/2 inches in height - the diameter of the rim is 2 1/4 inches
The saucer has a diameter of just over 5 inches
In excellent condition with no chips or damages.
Just so there is no confusion - this listing is for 1 cup and 1 saucer
I have a total of 5 cups and saucers available in total if you need more than these ones - select more with the down arrow box.
Shipping for more than one set will be capped at the price to send the one - THIS IS £4.95 WITH UK RECORDED MAIL.
I also have listed a lidded bowl and milk jug - all very handy if you are missing pieces from your own set.
