Royal Copenhagen Mid-Century Bird Motif Designs
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.
