A Vintage 1950's Royal Copenhagen'Crackle' vase with a hand-painted cactus design, designed by the artist Thorkild Olsen. The vase is in a late Art Deco style. The vase features a very neat craquelure glaze and metallic gold painted bands. The cactus is painted in a turquoise colour, with the spikes picked out with gold. There's more simplistic foliage painted to the reverse side.1950's'Royal Copenhagen' mark and blue waves to underside. Please see my other items. I have more vintage Scandinavian ceramics.
