IDA Royal Copenhagen Aluminia faience Coffee cup from 1959, and it is a very early example of how the new design Dírector Nils Thorsson, developed a Modernist style for the newly amalgamated company.
It is a beautiful, delicate design, hand-painted beneath the glaze, the simple pattern later developed into the ‘Annette’ design by Berte Jessen. And a myriad of like designs.
Very fine china, which has the expected crackling to the glaze in places. Wonderful condition for this 60 plus year old design.
5 coffee cups with saucers
Cup: 6 x 8 cm
Saucer 14 cm across
