Danish BR Keramik Sideplates & Trios (Each)

R99.00R138.00

A few weeks back we sold our first ever piece of pottery from Danish firm, BR (Brothers Rasmussen) Keramik. Today’s plates and trios of cups, saucers and side plates are from the same firm, and in fact the same designer, being the work of Einer Hellerøe, who produced the rustic ‘Amazonas’ design in 1958.

Given how roughly ‘painted’ this set is you wouldn’t imagine it to fetch very high prices, but quite the opposite is true: an Amazonas teacup and saucer can sell for as much as $50 (R760), but typically sells for around $20 (R300) – for a single cup that it is!! I haven’t been able to find a set of today’s plates, which are larger than side plates, and are more what you would term ‘salad’ plates, but just to give you an idea, six small side plates with a matching milk jug and sugar bowl are currently for sale on Etsy for $128 – that’s a rather impressive R1900!

NB: The underside of the one plate has a bad chip which has been roughly touched up. There are also more minor chips to the base of the cups, which have also been touched up (see photos). Fortunately though because of the style of the pottery, the wear isn’t very noticeable.

Dimensions: Salad plates – 20.5cm in diameter; Cups – 9.5cm tall x 7.5cm in diameter; Saucers – 15cm in diameter; Side plates – 17cm in diameter
