Gorgeous complete teak & cast iron fondue set with Lazy Susan by Digsmed in the 1960s, all in excellent vintage condition
FONDUE SET with Lazy Susan by Digsmed in the 1960s – absolutely gorgeous complete teak and cast iron fondue set on a Lazy Susan with glass bowls – all in excellent vintage condition!
Absolutely one of the most beautiful and stylish fondue sets we have ever seen – a beautiful circular teak rotating Lazy Susan with a static center-plate suited for a cast iron stand with fuel holder/burner and a cast iron pot with white enameled inner and lid, and 8 square glass bowls placed on the rotating tier of the Lazy Susan – this is a magnificent example of Danish Craftsmanship!
It is hallmarked underneath with the early Digsmed logo and numbered 111. Digsmed Design or Digsmed Woodcarving was a small Danish design company, who designed and produced high quality household goods, primarily using teak, glass and cast iron during the 1960s and 1970s. The little information we have been able to find about the company, have revealed the name Flemming Digsmed – as owner (at some time) and designer. Digsmed produced a broad range of beautiful Lazy Susans and spice racks with a common theme – a rotating wooden circle attached to an unseen base and matching glass bowls or dishes. They also produced candle holders with a rounded center of teak with cast iron holders attached to the side of the teak center. We have also come across a variety of teak trays and teak bowl.
The company collaborated with Holmegaard Glassworks for all the glass parts and Nissen Langå (Nissen Wood factory, Langå) which produced parts of the teak products and the cast iron products – on a side note; Nissen Langå also collaborated with Dansk Designs and Jens H. Quistgaard and produced some of their products. In 1990 Nissen Langå was bought by Danish producer of kitchenware, Bodum. Many products are hallmarked Digsmed Nissen or Digsmed Langå – the reason is the collaboration between the two companies, Digsmed and Nissen Langå.
According to our knowledge the Digsmed company closed in 1975. The high quality of the materials and the appealing design, combined with their short presumably production period make Digsmed products highly sought after today by Mid Century enthusiasts.
