Never thought I would describe an ashtray as stunning but this one could nearly make smoking cool!!
Beautiful design that only the scandinavians can do! This one is by Grete Prytz Kittelsen & Arne Korsmo for Cathrineholm in Norway – Just listed on ebay – ow.ly/LUDDW
“Cathrineholm was actually the name of the company in Norway that manufactured enamel bowls/ashtrays, dishes, and other kitchen ware until 1970. The designer responsible for this striking collection was a woman by the name of Grete Prytz Kittelsen, often referred to as the “Queen of Scandinavian Design,” & was known for her beautiful work with sterling, enamel, and other metals. Her designs earned her numerous awards, as well as well-deserved attention as an inspiration and integral part of the Scandinavian Design movement.”
Keep an eye out as we also have more Cathrineholm items coming soon & if you are a fan of Orla Kiely designs then you are in for a treat because before Orla there was this………………..
