Jens Quistgaard “Cordial”, Kronjyden Nissen

Another of the hugely popular designs by Jens Quistgaard for Kronjyden Nissen Denmark in the 1960s was “Cordial” . This was another of the stoneware series Quistgaard designed – but the matte glaze surfaces of “Contrast” and “Azure” were now replaced with a more versatile and user friendly satin gloss glaze.

The design features an charming embossed repeat pattern of the small connected hearts.

Light grey was the default colour of this design, but it was made in several other colours later in its production.

Circa 1984 a range of other colours were introduced which ran until 1988 when Knabstrup closed and production was taken over by Bing & Grondahl (but it is not clear if Quistgaard had any involvement in the addition of other colours to the design). Read more

Jens Quistgaard “Azur”, Kronjyden Nissen

Jens Quistgaard’s “Azur” Design was created for Kronjyden Nissen Demark in the early 1960s, soon after “Relief”.

The design features a charming abstracted floral repeat motif, reminiscent of Japanese cherry blossom. The plates are have an octagonal form, and the whole series seems a further refinement of the “Relief” design.

The most common colourway you will find it in is a subtle blue grey, but the design was also made in at least 1 other colour – a chocaltey brown called “Umbra”

Jens Quistgaard “Relief” Design – Kronjyden Nissen

The dinnerware design “Relief” by Jens Quistgaard for Kronjyden Nissen Denmark has become a classic and coveted design since its introduction in 1959. It was designed at the beginning of a long and productive relationship between Quistgaard and Kronjyden Nissen and resulted in a series of outstanding designs.

“Relief” is a matt glazed stoneware, in a wheat or ochre colour featuring a stylised wheat-sheaf repeat pattern. Handles of some of the teapots, sugar bowls etc. feature rattan wrapped brass handles – very popular at the time.

The green inners you can see on some pieces like the bowls and plates was a later addition – possibly introduced because of the noise matt glazed stoneware makes against cutlery.

Several of the vessel designs have a white satin glaze interior as well.
