Danish Mid Century Modern Krenit Salad Bowl White by H. Krenchel / Torben Ørskov

About the Item

A Danish Mid Century Modern Krenit bowl with white enamel inside and distintive matte black outer glaze. Designer Herbert Krenchel and retailed by Torben Orskov of Denmark in the 1950s. The stamp on the bottom would sometimes rub off since the base is flat and the logo applied over the finish product. The stamp reads clearly H.KRENCHEL -DENMARK and logo. Condition: Some minor roughness on rim. Black finish shows wear consitent with age and use inherent to the Krenit bowls, not bad. Please look at all images. Measurements: 9 7/8 inches diameter x 4 3/4 inches height. Please look at our other listings of Krenchel’s designs. Herbert Krenchel was a Danish material researcher and designer who became obessed with creating a very thin metal salad bowl after seeing the popularity, at the time, of Danes to serve large leafy green salads. Krenchel created a process where a very shiny and durable colored enamel could be applied to the inside of the bowl and keeping a matte black finish on the outside and the Krenit (1953-1964) salad bowl came to be. The original bowl was named C-bowl ( 12.5 cm / 4.9 inches diameter). A design firm founded in 1953 by Torben Ørskov was entrusted for the sales of the newly developed Krenit bowls. In 2007, the Normann Copenhagen company reintroduced the Krenit bowl but in Gold and real Silver with the iconic black matte finish on the outside.
