Autumnal, Mid Century Orange

Monday morning is here again and it is rather grey and bleak outside so I decided a little bit of colour needed to be injected to kick start this week. This last week I have been busy spending time on our online Etsy shop adding lots of new additions in the lead up to the busy holiday period and this morning it is all about colour with some lovely Mid Century oranges, a perfect combo for the Autumnal season.

One addition is a stylish Catherine Holm saucepan, a Scandinavian design classic from the 1950s. Catherine Holm is an enamel cookware designed by Norwegian Grete Prytz Kittelsen. Grete Prytz Kittelsen (born in 1917) designed a numerous works using silver, vitreous enamel and plastic material. As one of the leading artists of the Scandinavian Design movement, Kittelsen received several awards and honors in the 1950s. From 1954 to 57 she participated in the “Design in Scandinavia” exhibition, shown in several places in the United States and Canada. Near the end of the 50s, her products, manufactured by Hadeland Glassverk and Cathrineholm, were commonly found in Norwegian homes. “Sensasjonskasserollen” (The Sensational Casserole) was particularly successful, with 150,000 units sold in 1964. Her Lotus pattern became extremely popular and is the design you can see here on the new addition to our shop:
