Marked with the Saxbo yin-yang symbol, the model number 76, two dots (the marks of Thrower Egon Thomsen) and “Saxbo Danmark” (used from 1937-1945). Eva Staehr-Nielsen joined Saxbo in June 1932. For almost 20 years from 1932-1952 she was Saxbo’s only artist designer and although other designer brought some renewal of production, the ceramist representing the company's artistic profile, is Eva Stæhr-Nielsen to whom the classic Saxbo style should be attributed. Saxbo (1930-1968) is now widely recognized as one of the finest independent ceramic workshops in Scandinavia with a wide and far ranging influence on several generations of ceramicists. Today, pieces are included in the collections of the Copenhagen Industrial Arts Museum, The Swedish National Museum, the New York Museum of Modern Art and the New York Metropolitan Museum of Arts.
