It’s been absolutely ages (like years) since I’ve come across any Dansk Kobenstyle enamel, so I did a little skip and a hop when I spotted this lovely turquoise pitcher the other day (even if I did have to pay a pretty penny for it)! The Kobenstyle line of cookware and tableware was designed by Danish industrial designer, Jens Quistgaard, for Dansk Designs (New York) in 1956. It proved a massive hit at the time, and seems to never have gone out of fashion, with the designs being re-released a few years ago. This pitcher is obviously one of the original pieces produced, and being in the region of sixty years old has a bit of wear with the inside white enamel having yellowed a bit with age. There are also one or two minor dings in the outer turquoise enamel, but nothing too serious. Kobenstyle enamelware is mad collectible – this identical jug is for sale on Etsy for a whopping $105 (with our sad exchange rate that’s the equivalent of R1500!), although you can pick them up for around $55 (but that’s still R800!).
Dimensions: 20cm tall x 10cm in diameter
