Item 1 of 4


Rare very large bowl or wall decor designed by Marianne Starck for the famous Danish ceramic workshop Michael Andersen & Søn (MA&S) on the island of Bornholm. Made ca 1960s. 

The bowl can also be hung on the wall. It´s decorated by hand and feautres a couple in love sitting on a branch. 

It's decorated with the so-called Persia glaze which gives a vivid colorplay and makes every piece unique. The Persia glaze has a crackle effect and was developed at Michael Andersen & Søn in the 1930s by David Andersen. They won a gold medal for this at the Worlds Fair in Brussels in 1935. 

The firing has a large influence on the color and how the colors melt into each other giving every piece a unique expression. In our eyes this piece has an especially beautiful colorplay.


Excellent vintage condition. 
No chips, cracks, repairs.
