Very rare bonbonnières with gold leaf by Jens Thirslund

These two very rare earthenware bonbonnières designed by Jens Thirslund (1892-1942) were executed by Herman A. Kähler, Denmark, in the 1920s.

The fancy lidded boxes made for delicious confectionery are glazed with emerald green, red and white luster and 24-carat gold leaf.

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. These bonbonnières by ceramist Jens Thirslund are a further development of the pottery’s technique with metallic glazes.

They have the ‘HAK, Danmark’ monogram incised.

Exhibited: Similar models were presented at the Exposition Universelle, Paris, 1925.
