Zeuthen Keramik

My friend was travelling through Denmark and found a cute little red clay vase by Zeuthen. There seems to be only limited information online. I could only find this on etsy: “Nordisk Brugskunst (Nordic Applied Art) was founded in Denmark c. 1946 by Normann Zeuthen; in 1948, he introduced the name “Zeuthen Keramik”. Zeuthen employed 10-15 employees who produced a variety of red clay items. Zeuthen pieces are very distinctive with their globular white and/or blue decorations; they are also popular collectibles.” The company no longer exists.

I love their simple white glaze graphic designs (dots, stripes, clover leaves, small flowers or stars). It contrasts nicely against the red clay. The Danish know their style.

Ebay seems to be the best place to buy Zeuthen. I recently bought a few pieces including a petite round vase, a gorgeous polka dot teapot and a polka dot piggy bank.
