    Very large red vase with handles

    Very large vase with two handles by Herman Hans Christian Kähler

    This generous sized and magnificent earthenware vase with two handles was designed and executed around 1897 by Herman Hans Christian Kähler (b. 1876, d. 1940) with luster decoration by Karl Hansen Reistrup. Herman Hans Christian Kähler was the son of Herman August Kähler and grandson of Herman Joachim Kähler. Yes, a lot of Hermans. Herman August Kähler was the one who put the Kähler name on the map, and his initials that became the pottery’s HAK-monogram. This vase is from the time when Herman August Kähler and Karl Hansen Reistrup were creating incredible pieces and showcasing them all over the world. His son, Herman Hans Christian Kähler was in his twenties learning the trade and experimenting along side. Herman H. C. Kähler would some years later take over the family business and change the style, but at that time he was very much his father’s son. Signed ‘HAK’ monogram and incised ‘Danmark’. H. 34,5 cm. (13,5") W. 18 cm. (7,1") Exhibited: Den nordiske Udstilling i Stockholm, Sweden 1897.

Ejner Larsen had finished his studies a few years earlier and was in 1946 actually teaching at the academy. Together they entered the cabinetmaker’s design competition in 1946. Jalk had entered the competition the year before without success, but this time she wins 1st prize with Ejner Larsen. After having won she is offered a position at the academy in Stockholm and despite her collaborative success with Ejner Larsen she accepts and moves to Sweden - for six months initially, but she ends up staying on for longer. Back in Denmark Ejner Larsen is looking for a new partner and the year after he joins forces with Aksel Bender Madsen, whom he had studied with at the academy. The two would go on to collaborate for decades and most of the time with master cabinetmaker Willy Beck, who also helped Jalk and Larsen execute this particular wingback chair.
