The pottery L. (Lauritz) Hjorth was founded on the Danish island of Bornholm in 1859, a place so known for their great pottery tradition. Also Michael Andersen and Søholm were situated here.
L. Hjorth made high quality ceramic for decades. Have a look at the homepage of Bornholms Museum: http://www.bornholmsmuseer.dk/hjorths/omhjorth.html
We are sorry it´s all in Danish but you can see some images there.
