Mid Century Danish Modern Thyssen Keramic Stone Figurines - Modernist Stoneware Viking Set

With their simple shapes, and clean lines, these three terra cotta figurines epitomize mid century Danish design. Created by Thyssen Keramik of Denmark in the 1960s, these were at the forefront of Scandinavian design, and are akin in type and quality to the work of Lisa Larson. In absolutely superb condition, with no wear whatsoever, these three figures (a viking, pregnant mother, and small woman) make a truly incredible set. We especially love the set in child accent on the mother piece: there's something wonderfully Modern about the depiction. The stoneware used to fashion these pieces is incredibly fine, and the black glaze beautifully contrasts the rich earth tone of the exposed terra cotta. Hand-formed and finished, this set sits wonderefully in between folk art and high art, making it a particularly great accent set. Thyssen produced some of the finest Danish stoneware of the Mid Century, and this set is an incredible, rare find. Each piece is marked "Thyssen Keramik Danmark" on the bottom. These would make a striking addition to any mid century or Scandinavian inspired home, and would look excellent alongside any Gustavsberg or Danish Modern collection!
