While I am posting today about Scandinavian enamelware, I figured I would include a little blurb about Cathrineholm. I am totally loving these mid-century pieces from a now defunct Norwegian ironworks company called Cathrineholm. Again, finding info on the web is scarce but you can find pieces all over the place. Many of the Cathrineholm designs were created by a woman named Grete Prytz Korsmo, wife of architect Arne Korsmo. Apparently she won the Lunning prize in 1953 and 'a Grand Prix at the 1954 Milan Triennale for enamel and was highly coveted for her enamel design.
The pieces in these photos can be found at a store called Hi+Lo Modern in NYC.
