The Cathrineholm factory opened in Halden, Norway in 1907. Originally producing ironworks and agricultural equipment, they then moved to creating signage and general household wares, before producing enamelled kitchenware.

As a designer, Grete Prytz Kittelsen was contracted to Cathrineholm, from 1955 until 1972.

During that time she designed a range of enamelware for the company - most famously Lotus (1962-65) and not-so-famously Stripes (1956), Square (1958) and Bands (1958).

Contrary to popular belief, the flower pattern displayed on the Lotus design was not the work of Grete herself, but by a lesser known employee. In fact, Grete has been known to comment on how she doesn't like the pattern at all and that it ruins the look of her solid-colour design!


THIS LISTING:

A stunning coffee pot in the Lotus pattern, green on white.

This beauty is in excellent vintage condition, with no real surface wear. Internally it is clean and free from damage... we would question if this has been used at all to be honest.

Measuring 18cm tall x 13.5cm diameter (base).
