This small Vintage Danish Nymolle ceramic vase was made in Denmark during the 1960s. The design is by Bjorn Wiinblad and depicts a drawing of a woman surrounded by flowers in blue.
Bjorn Wiinblad (born 1918 in Copenhagen, died 2006) was a Danish painter, designer and artist in the field of ceramics, silver, bronze, textiles and graphic design. His work has been exhibited throughout Europe, in 1954 in the United States and in 1968 also in Japan, Australia and Canada. Wiinblad was named New York Man of the Year in 1985 and received the American-Scandinavia Foundation Cultural Award in 1995.
Wiinblad’s work is characterized by ornate drawings of round-faced figures in 19th-century costumes, often surrounded by natural elements such as swaying vines, flower crowns, and fancy trees. When Wiinblad began working with color, he did so with complete abandon. Its colors are intense, sometimes even psychedelic, complemented by gold and silver metal.
Wiinblad was a major designer for the German porcelain manufacturer Rosenthal. Before that, he made various ceramic items for Danish nym’lle pottery.
It’s in very good vintage condition.
