Cup Measurements are 2.25"W x 3.5"H, Saucer measurements are 5.25"W x 1"H Jens Harald Quistgaard (April 23, 1919 – January 4, 2008) was a Danish sculptor and designer, known principally for his work for the American company Dansk Designs, where he was chief designer from 1954 and for the following three decades. Though a sculptor and grounded in traditional handicrafts, he quickly established a career as an Industrial designer. From the mid-1950s his tableware and kitchenware designs became synonymous with Scandinavian Modern and found their way into millions of homes in the US, Europe and Japan. With his international orientation and success he was groundbreaking, and he had great significance for the place which Danish design acquired in the minds of many Americans.
