Sunshine on a grey day

It was such a treat to find this sunny teaset in these grey, wet and foggy times. Egersund Unique is handpainted and the pieces therefore have an individual look. On the olivegreenish/ brown edges you can clearly see the brushstrokes. Unique was designed by Kaare Block Johansen in 1971 and was in production until 1976, just a few years before Egersund Fajanse closed down in 1979.

Unique has the exact same design as Korulen, also by Kaare Block Johansen, but which has a lovely sunflower pattern by Unni Margrethe Johnsen. I have found quite a bit of both of these sunny designs. I so love the colors and those amazing early 70s lines. The teapot is simply amazing!

I've written quite a bit about these before, so I won't bore you by repeating myself. If you're interested, you can find quite a bit of information here and here. Wish you all a great week!

    1. Me too, Dana!! So glad you liked it!! Yes, I think the brown accents do so much for this design and the visible brush strokes makes them even more precious!

    1. They really do, don't they? The colorful, happy 70s:-) I got a comment from a frenchman over on Instagram, who told me his mom had them when he was little. So I guess Egersund pottery did their share of travelling too!

  9. Hello Tove, About 6 years ago while in a Bergen charity shop I bought what I uses as a fruit bowl. It looks 1950's 60's modern earthernware in design and hand painted. It is signed but I can't read it? I've seen nothing like it on your blog, but that said, I was wondering if I could send you a few photos for your experts opinion. cheers! tommyartgallery@yahoo.com
