WALL RELIEF (no. 2866) by Beth Breyen in the 1960s, produced by Aluminia / Royal Copenhagen – charming wall piece with two birds, in excellent vintage condition.
A stunning wall piece – made in terracotta with blue glaze. Featuring two birds with fuzzy feathers, one smaller than the other, and looking towards each other. The background is glazed with blue tones, whereas the birds are kept unglazed – this only catches your eye even more than the two charming birds.
Black back stamp with Aluminia logo – shape 162/2866 and the signature BB for Beth Breyen. The backside features small “hook” for wall hanging.
Beth Breyen was a Norwegian designer. In 1958 she, along with five other talented female Scandinavian designers, got hired by Nils Thorsson to decorate his Series of stoneware, Tenera. Nils Thorsson designed the shapes and each of the young designers designed colorful patterns as decoration. The colorful designs revitalized the faience and became a huge success for Aluminia / Royal Copenhagen. The bird with fuzzy feathers was Breyen’s most used design, but usually her designs only featured one bird.
This WALL RELIEF is a wonderful example of Scandinavian mid century craftsmanship and would be a stunning addition to any home – whether you would choose to hang it in hallway or in the living room to add a burst of color.
