DESIGN ICONS
IN ENAMEL

The much-loved enamel designs of the 60s are today considered design icons and are coveted collectibles, particularly the brightly-coloured enamelled bowls, which were hugely popular in Scandinavia and the US in the 1960s. Some of the most popular designs are the result of a collaboration between the Norwegian ironworks Cathrineholm and the Norwegian enamel artist Grete Prytz Kittelsen.

about
CATHRINEHOLM

The Cathrineholm ironworks were founded in 1829 outside Halden in southern Norway and enjoyed their heyday in the 1960s and 70s. Cathrineholm initially made nails, ship chains and castings, in addition to bathtubs and agricultural implements. In 1907, the factory started up as an enamel works, producing contemporary enamelled kitchenware for many years until 1954, when Cathrineholm converted its coarse production in iron to fine production in steel – which quickly proved a success.

Award-winning
designs

Cathrineholm was synonymous with Grete Prytz Kittel’s designs – the stripes and lotus pattern were some of her most famous and beloved successes, but she was also an innovative designer who experimented with many forms, patterns and production methods. Cathrineholm and Grete Prytz Kittelsen were bang on trend in their day, with their different brightly-coloured designs.
