Royal Copenhagen Fajance Vase


Reference: 03182

Description: A vase, from the Baca range, designed by Nils Thorssen for Royal Copenhagen and produced from 1964 to the 1970's. In the Baca range, Thorsson's own design motifs ranged from naturalistic to abstract and geometric. This line had a lot of complexity in design and relief within the glazing. "Fajance" is a term for hand painted ceramic.

Dimensions: H: 11cm (4.5")

Additional Information: Born in Sweden, Nils Thorsson (1898-1975) started at the Alumina Factory in Copenhagen, Denmark as an apprentice aged just thirteen. In 1917 Thorsson graduated from the Royal Danish Academy. He excelled as a designer and in 1928 became Alumina Factory's Artistic Director, a post he held for forty one years! Thorsson was the factory's most prolific designer with a keen eye for talent. When Alumina purchased Royal Copenhagen in 1949, Thorsson remained as Artistic Director, leading a team of ultra-talented designers. Nils Thorsson designed several production ranges for Alumina-Royal Copenhagen. Four lines in particular became tremendously popular: Solberg (1930's), Marselis (Alumina-1950's), Tenera (1960's), and Baca (1964- 70's). Tenera was a special line because of it's design diversity. Many of the motifs have the color blue in common, but the use of color, and texture, has some exquisite variations with each designer's work. Tenera's design team consisted of: Berte Jessen, Inge Lise-Koefoed, Marianne Johnson, Kari Christensen, Bethe Breyen, Grete Helland-Hansen & Johanne Gerber. The Alumina Factory dropped its name in 1969 and became Royal Copenhagen
