Studio: Saxbo

Designer: Eva Staehr Nielsen (1911-1976)

Period: 1950’s

Country: Denmark

Size: H: 12 cm [4.7 inches], W: 6.5 cm [2.6 inches]

Details and Condition: Narrow mouth brown hares’ fur vase, probably designed by Eva Staehr Nielsen. Marked with the Saxbo yin-yang symbol encircled and the logo from Danish engine manufacturing company Titan. Along with many others this vase was most likely custom ordered at Saxbo by Titan as a gift to its employees or customers. Eva Staehr-Nielsen joined Saxbo in 1932 and was the architect of the instantly recognizable “Saxbo Style” together with founder Nathalie Krebs. Staeh helped to redefine that style in the late 1950’s when she moved from the wheel modeled pottery to molded pottery and began experimenting with sculptural shapes and incised patters. When Saxbo closed in 1968 she went to Royal Copenhagen where she worked until her death in 1976. 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.
