Royal Copenhagen Mid-Century Bird Designs

Bird designs and motifs were a prominent in the mid 20th century ceramics……and some of the best bird motif designs came from Royal Copenhagen//Aluminia, Denmark during the Nils Thorsson directed Baca and Tenera period of designs in the 1960s

Many of these designs featured blue colour schemes, and the designs seem to have been hugely popular going by the amount produced. Here are just some that I have come across featuring the colour blue and a bird motif.
