Rare earthenware vase with gold leaf by Jens Thirslund

This rare earthenware vase by Jens Thirslund (1892-1942) manufactured by Herman A. Kähler, Denmark, ca. in the 1920s. It is glazed with sapphire blue, emerald green, white luster and 24-carat gold leaf.

The vase has the ‘HAK, Danmark’ monogram incised.

In 1875, Herman August Kähler began experimenting with metallic glazes together with the pottery’s artistic director Karl Hansen Reistrup. Kähler and Reistrup achieved recognition at the Great Nordic Exhibition in 1888 held in Copenhagen and the Exposition Universelle of 1889 in Paris. This vase by ceramist Jens Thirslund is a further development of the pottery’s technique with metallic glazes.

Similar models to this vase were presented at the Exposition Universelle, Paris, 1925.
