Description

Measures: 6 5/8" tall X 4 3/4" top diameter

This Royal Copenhagen vase has a Craquelé finish and was made in Denmark and designed by Thorkild Olsen during the 1950s. There are no chips - cracks - scratches - stains or wear to any part of the vase. It is in perfect condition. The entire surface - inside and out is intentionally cracked to give it the desired Craquelé finish and the flower and leaf designs are accentuated with 24 kt gold along with the top of the base.

"Thorkild Osvald Olsen ( July 7, 1890 in Glumsø - April 30, 1973 at Frederiksberg ) was a Danish painter and ceramist who worked with both faience and porcelain . He was the father of architect Jørgen Selchau .

Thorkild Olsen was the son of tailor master Ole Peder Olsen and Kristine Jensen, graduated in 1906 and became a student at the Royal Porcelain Factory under Arnold Krog in May 1908 . He attended the Technical School and the Academy of Arts from January 1911 to January 1914 .

Olsen was employed by the Kungl. Porcelain factory from 1908, head of Juliane Marie Dept., The overglow painting department, painted in 1918 and teaches at the 1926-29 crafts school.

Thorkild Olsen became an important partner for Nils Thorsson in his rescue of Aluminia. Later, Olsen became a key figure in the establishment in the kgl. Porcelain Factory Worldwide. He worked with both modeling and decoration, especially over and under glass painting, and he contributed to the development of glazes . In his early works, eg. A number of works in craquette porcelain from the 1920s , the decoration in iron and gold is naturalistic, most often with botanical motifs. Since then he was absorbed by stylizing the decoration, which eventually became pure abstraction based on the naturalization that played an important role for him.

His starting point was persistent naturalism . The abstract ornament , also used in woodcarving and dust printing , used Olsen in the 1950s to work in soft porcelain with decorations in the ancient Chinese pourpre de chine glass that was rebuilt in the late 1940s and decorated with bleu royal -glasur. His late works are experiments with blanc de chine , with cuts and reliefs that emphasize the mass's transparency.

Thorkild Olsen received KA Larssen's Legacy in 1925 and 1937, supported by the Reiersen Fund 1925, silver medal at the World Exhibition in Paris in 1925, Laur. Andersen 1935, Diplôme d'honneur at the World Exhibition in Brussels in 1935 and in Paris 1937, HH Bruun and Supreme Court Attorney CL Davids Legacy of Family and Friends 1958.

He is represented in the Royal Copenhagen Museum , the Art Industry Museum , the Museum of Modern Art , New York , the Musée des Arts Décoratifs , Paris and the Museo Internazionale delle Ceramiche in Faenza .

He married Marietjie 1 June 12, 1920 at Frederiksberg with the ceramist Ellinor Selchau (12th January 1899 in Svendborg - December 12, 1986 in Kongens Lyngby ), daughter of gardener Anton Selchau and Margrethe f. Thellefsen. The marriage was dissolved and he married 2nd time July 9, 1938 at Frederiksberg with language teacher Berthe Christensen (16th of October 10th, 1913 in Paris, daughter of sales manager at Rouard, later director of the Royal Porcelain factory Christian Vilhelm Christensen and Else Sachs."
