Jens Quistgaard “Rune”, Kronjyden Nissen
Another of the great stoneware designs by Jens Quistgaard for Danish maker Kronjyden Nissen in the 1960s.
This design is called “Rune”, and the motifs on the design appears to be based upon or give an impression of early Runes (turned on their side) which were which were used to write various Germanic/Scandinavian languages before the adoption of the Latin alphabet.
Again it is a stoneware dinner service, this time with a smooth semi matte glaze with lovely pale olive green to ochre colours on the rims and edges. Again the brass rattan wrapped handles on some of the pieces add to the feel of being hand-crafted.
