Early vase made by one of the most innovative Scandinavian ceramic artists Svend Hammershøj (1873-1948) for the Ceramic Workshop of Herman A. Kähler in Denmark
The vase was produced between 1906-1914. It is shown in a catalog from 1914 featuring the production of Svend Hammershøj in this period.
Hammershøj worked for Kähler in several periods, and this period in particular was characterized by experiments - especially with different glazes. Instead of individually painting each piece Hammershoej and Herman A Kahler tried using different glazes. This vase is an example of his work with Aventurine glaze. Each vase went through the hands of Svend Hammershøj and therefore you do not see an actual mass production of his works from this period
Signed HAK. Excellent condition with only a minimal chip (only glaze) at the bottom rim.
