About the design
P17 vase by Michael Andersen & Son in the 1930s.
It is a vase made in ceramics with a voluptuous shaped body, narrowing into a neck to end with a rounded collar and a charming sprout. On the side it features a curved handle, making it mimic a pitcher. It is covered with a beautiful Persia glazing in gray and turquoise going on aged-copper-green nuances in an almost pixilated pattern, revealing a dusty rose underneath.
Hallmarked with the stamp of Michael Andersen & Søn and numbered P17. Please see the photos!
The Persia glazing technique was created by Daniel Folkmann Andersen (one of fours sons of the founder Jens Michael Andersen) in the early 1930s. At the World Exhibition in Brussels, in 1935, Daniel Folkmann Andersen won the gold medal for this new glazing technique, and thus emphasizing the Pottery’s position as one of leading in creative and innovative ceramic design, in Denmark.
