About the design
The Flamestone coffee pot is is part of the Flamestone dinnerware series designed by Jens H. Quistgaard for Dansk Designs in 1958.
It is an elegant stoneware coffee pot with a tall slightly hour-glass shaped body, a charming spout and a beautiful handle, shaped to fit perfect in the hand – the handle is echoed on the lid. The outer features a sandy dark gray, almost brown, matte glazed finish, while the inner features off-white porcelain. The upper half is decorated with a subtle fluted pattern, while the rest proudly show the beautiful dark rough finish.
The Flamestone dinnerware series from 1958 was introduced to the market as dinnerware, pretty enough to be served straight from the oven to the dining table without harming the surface underneath it – the first of its kind and it was quickly followed by a number of dinnerware series from Quistgaard and Dansk Designs.
The smooth version of the Flamestone was introduced in 1964.
A new, updated version of the Flamestone was introduced in 2008 by Dansk, now part of the Lenox Corporation along with a small number of other Quistgaard designs.
With its extremely appealing silhouette and understated elegance, Quistgaard have created a timeless series of dinnerware with his Flamestone.
