New collection

A new collection has started, but this time it's not for me. I bought my daughter her first piece of Cathrineholm as one of her Christmas gifts. It's a beautiful two-toned blue 8" Lotus bowl in excellent condition. The design by Grete Prytz Kittelsen has been an icon since the 1960s.

Excuse the ebay photo. The whole family has been sick since Christmas Day. Thank goodness I had several posts scheduled, but they've all been used, so what you get may be a little short or even sporadic for the next few days.

  4. So sorry to hear that you and your family are sick. Here's to a speedy recovery.

    I love Cathrineholm pieces. I only have three but I'm always on the lookout. My first piece is a bowl similar to the one you gave your daughter. Mine has the design as white on the darker blue (the same blue as the design on your daughter's bowl).

  6. Those beautiful bowls last forever and are incredibly useful! I have several and, even after I dropped my precious HUGE one, full of water, on to concrete, and it sustained a big ding, (insert 3 days of horror and pouting, here) we both survived and it serves and delights me, still! Great start with that color combination! Next find the green on yellow (sounds awful, looks beautiful!)-- Hope you feel better soon and have a fantastic New Year!! We all love your posts!
