'Oldnordic' terracotta evaporator by Michael Andersen
This impressive ‘Oldnordic’ urn / evaporator of terracotta by Michael Andersen (1859-1931) was executed around 1900.

The evaporator is richly decorated with Old Nordic motifs like dragons, runes, shields and ancient ornaments. The runes are the names of the legendary Nordic hero Regnar Lodbrog and his wife, Tora Borgarhjort.
Similar model is a part of the Michael Andersen exhibition at Bornholm Museum, Denmark.
