Beautiful Laurentz Hjorth - Blue Ornate Stoneware Canister from around 1927

In overall good condition and measuring 15.5cm tall 11cm x 7.5cm. Complete with lid - many examples lack the lid but this is complete.

This little beauty hails from Bornholm, which is an island part of Denmark.

This work is inspired by the style of sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen whose work is made by Hjorth. The two sons of Lauritz Hjorth, Peter Christian Hjorth (1873-1959) and Hans Adolph Hjorth (1878-1966) took over the production in 1912. Hans Hjorth produced the first stoneware of the factory and received various international prizes for it.

The children of Lauritz Hjorth took over the company after the death of their father in 1912. The back stamps of Hjorth are sometimes difficult to distinguish, though once one is familiar, they are easy to recognize.

There seem to be quite some variations of the letter type and the stamp is sometimes ‘Hjorth, Bornholm’ and sometimes ‘Hjorth Denemarken’, which has to do whether they were made for export or not. After 1927, a deer was added to the stamp, as is the case here.
