Stoneware "Green Relief" Teapot by J.H. Quistgaard for Kronjyden, Denmark, 1960s

About the Item

Extremely rare "green relief" teapot by Jens Harald Quistgaard in soneware with handle of brass and cane wicker. Made at "Kronjyden" Pottery in the 1960s. The relief dinnerware was made in large numbers in the standard light brown glazing, but the green glazing is only found on very few examples. This teapot is the largest in the relief series and is in perfect condition. A collectors item. The dinnerware design “Relief” by Jens Quistgaard for "Kronjyden Nissen, Denmark" has become a classic and coveted design since its introduction in 1959. It was designed at the beginning of a long and productive relationship between Quistgaard and Kronjyden Nissen and resulted in a series of outstanding designs. “Relief” is a matte glazed stoneware, in a wheat or ochre colour featuring a stylised wheat-sheaf repeat pattern. Handles of some of the teapots, sugar bowls etc. feature rattan wrapped brass handles – very popular at the time. After the second world war, Jens Harald Quistgaard was apprenticed in the Georg Jensen Solvsmedie in Copenhagen. He has experimented with various media such as wood, metal, glass, steel and ceramics. Ted Nierenberg, the founder of Dansk International, noticed him because of his distinctively Danish craft aesthetic. He worked for him for 30 years, starting in 1954. Quistgaard has received public recognition with six prizes in the Milan Triennali, winning both the Lunning Prize in 1954 and the Scandinavian Award.
