Early Version! Nils Thorsson for Aluminia / Royal Copenhagen BACA Bottle Vase Bird Motif Danish Mid-century
Bottle shaped vase from the Aluminia (later brandname Royal Copenhagen) BACA series of the late sixties/ early seventies.
The design is by Nils Thorsson and shows a bird and floral motif on all sides.
This piece was also later made with the Royal Copenhagen hallmark, when Aluminia bought Royal Copenhagen in 1972 and continued with the Royal Copenhagen brandname. But this is the early version with the Aluminia hallmark. Pieces from this series with Aluminia hallmark are much more sought after by collectors.
Nils Thorsson was the artistic leader of Royal Copenhagen for decades.
He was very innovative until his late years just as here where he had experimented with new glazing technics. The result is very tactile and lovely to touch.
Marked on verso with the Aluminia hallmark, the decoration and model numbers 713/3208, the painters signature and in the BACA circle the signature of Nils Thorsson.
