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 pair of bowls in the Stripes pattern, white on seafoam green - the 8" and 7" sizes.

Both beauties are in good vintage condition, with some surface wear. On the 8" there is two small chips to the enamel on the external rim and some additional light wear, which you can see in the pictures. The 7" shows the most wear - loss to the colour and shine, and some scratches.

Measuring 8.5cm tall x 20cm diameter (8") and 7.5cm tall x 18cm diameter (7").
