A fine vase by Nils Kahler, of Denmark.

The Kahler dynasty began in 1839 and continues today....phew!

This vase is dated '54 and stands 4" tall. It also has the HAK designation and "Nils".

From Kahlerdesign.com:

In 1940, Nils Kähler and his brother Herman Jørgen Kähler took over the workshop. This would be the last generation of the Kähler family to run the company. Both brothers worked as designers, but Nils soon took over the artistic side, while Herman J. was responsible for the administrative and practical function.
Nils Kähler was also known as ”the young Kähler”. Both he and his brother had been regular guests at the workshop since they were little. This was also where they received most of their training.
In 1931, Nils replaced the workshop’s old thrower. He then developed a passion for throwing large vases. For the fun of it, Nils began modelling piggy banks and other animals. Normally, this would be a job for an apprentice, but the idea of such animals as collectors’ items was taken seriously and put into production. These animals became some of the most popular products in the history of Kähler. The animals allowed Nils to indulge his preference for ceramics decorated with slipped horn painting and lead glaze.
Nils Kähler had a special talent for following the design trends of the time, which is evident from his production. Even though he was very enthusiastic about the old art of pottery, the production was characterised by the simple designs. He made design objects such as ashtrays, vases, jugs and lamp feet for Le Klint lamps. They were made out of stoneware, raw with no glazing, with his preferred salt glaze or the strong turquoise colour.
The era as a family-run company ended with the fourth generation of the Kähler family in 1974. For more than 130 years, Kähler was the rendezvous of distinguished artists.
