There are ordinary days. Some disapointing with no finds att all. Then there are good days with lovely finds. And then there are extraordinary fantastic days with one or two marvellous finds. Last Sunday was one of the extraordinary ones. When I entered the flea market I knew I should have brought more cash. To prioritize is a diffifult task. But I managed.
When I saw this vase from Palshus there was no doubt in my mind. Especially not as I turned it in my hands and saw the light playing in the glaze. The blue notes got even more lovely.
I don´t know much about the early production from Palshus, but in 1957 owners Annelise and Per Linnemann - Schmidt started working in chamotte stoneware with cut decorations and a glossy glaze. The vase is from that production and being in good condition as well it was really a marvellous find.
Palshus excisted from 1948-1972 and was situated just outside Copenhagen. In Taastrup. Some works are signed APLS for Annelise & Per Linnemann-Schmidt, others ALS for Annelise Linnemann-Schmidt and others again PL-S for Per Linnemann-Schmidt. They also had other artists working for them. For example Jens H. Quistgaard from 1948-50. Signed IHQ.
