About

Arne Bang for Royal Copenhagen, ribbed ceramic bowl, 1940s. An extraordinary example of Arne Bang's aesthetics, this ribbed stoneware bowl is the echelon of the Danish designer's works, in which shapes, colors and volumes merge creating a stunning collector's piece. This bowl presents a unique earthy green glazing on the whole surface, which recalls the open Scandinavian landscapes, of which the simple yet powerful object is imbued with. Adorned with the artist's monogram and the number 118 on the base, the piece is preserved in perfect conditions. Arne Bang (Danish, 1901 - 1983) was a sculptor and ceramicist who hailed from a family of artists. His father was a painter, his sister a ballet dancer, and his brother a glass designer and architect, with whom Arne often collaborated. Bang studied sculpture at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen from 1920-1925 and again from 1928-1929. With his brother, he traveled to Paris in 1925 to contribute to the Danish Pavilion at the World Exposition. While there, Bang was exposed to the arts and design of Japan, which greatly impacted his later aesthetics.

About the Manufacturer

Royal Copenhagen

Producers of the finest in Danish porcelain, Royal Copenhagen is a company steeped in tradition. Its celebrated blue-and-white china patterns as well as its famed hallmark depicting the royal crown and three waves — symbolizing the monarch who founded the company and the three major waterways of Denmark — are emblems of master craftsmanship.

Royal Copenhagen was founded in 1775 by Queen Juliane Marie. Years earlier, after the death of her husband, King Frederick V, Juliane’s stepson ascended the throne. Shortly into his reign, he went insane, and the Queen became the head of Denmark and its small empire. She sought to improve Denmark’s economy and founded factories around the country to promote domestic growth and international trade. Royal Copenhagen was one of the first of these. Royal Copenhagen first made dinnerware and vases with blue-and-white motifs inspired by Chinese porcelain, then the rage in aristocratic Europe. Many of these designs are still made today.

Apart from its classic patterns, Royal Copenhagen has adapted to the changing styles of time and appeals to many different tastes. Their prolific body of work includes Rococo-style porcelain statues that incorporate stylistic floral patterns in an Art Nouveau style, as well as modern vases by such noted 20th century Danish ceramists as Axel Salto. Whether used for special occasions or displayed as part of a design collection, Royal Copenhagen pieces represent a legacy of the highest quality.
