Hey Squirrel-Friend

Thorkild Olsen was famous for this distinctive crackle glazed line designed in the 1940s for Royal Copenhagen. Typically the forms of these vessels were strenuously classical, so, we were only too amused to find this extremely humorous squirrel lidded piece. The excellence of the rendering takes its theme away from kitsch and into admirable.
