Axel Sørensen for Ibsens Enke Denmark Vase Danit glaze 1930s Danish midcentury
Rare to find vase from the Danish pottery P. Ibsens Enke, which was situated on the island Bornholm.
The fantastic glaze is called DANIT and is by ceramist Axel Sørensen (1891-1967), probably from the 1930s.
The glaze and mixture of turquoise and red looks very different from different angles, lots of mixture on one part and lots of turquoise on another. Fascinating!
The Ibsens Enke hallmark isn´t visible or only very barely visible on verso - it might be hidden behind a layer of glaze.
A great item for your ceramic collection or a good piece to start with!
Very good used condtion
One very tiny chip at base - see last image.
Otherwise no cracks, crazing or repairs.
very well taken care of over the last about 80 years (imagine!)
