Danish Modern Teak Dansk Dinner Plates Quistgaard Kronjyden:
Danish Modern 9 (Nine) Teak Dansk Dinner Plates designed by Harald Quistgaard and made by Kronjyden
I am offering a set of 9 teak dinner plates, designed by Quistgaard and made by Kronjyden Denmark; a nice set of plates that excellently fit into a Sixties Danish Modern – Scandinavian inspired – surrounding or household. Actually the name dinner plates is not correct; these plates were used as underplate on which the different china or ceramic soup-, dinner- and dessertplates were placed. That is the reason why these plates are in excellent vintage condition and do not show cutting marks in the centre. There are minor signs of use and age, but definitely no cutting marks caused by knives. Each plate is marked Kronjyden Danmark with the letter Q.
Jens Harald Quistgaard was a Danish sculptor and designer, known principally for his work for the American company Dansk Designs, where he was chief designer from 1954 and for the following three decades. Though a sculptor and grounded in traditional handicrafts, he quickly established a career as an industrial designer. From the mid 1950's his tableware and kitchenware designs became synonymous with Scandinavian modern and found their way into millions of homes in the USA, Europe and Japan. With his international orientation and success he was groundbreaking, and he had great significance for the place which Danish Design acquired in the minds of many Americans. In 1958 he received the Neiman Marcus Award and during the following years he was represented at major museums in Europe and the USA. In addition to his work for Dansk Designs, Quistgaard has designed for Palshus Keramik, Eslau Keramik, De Forenede Jernstøberier A/S, Raadvad Knivfabrik A/S, Sival Staal, O.V. Mogensen, Slagelse Sølvvarefabrik, Kronjyden, Nissen / Langaa, Bing & Grøndahl, Trip Trap, IQ Designs, Gubi of Copenhagen.
The plates measure 10.9” inch or 27,7 cm each; the individual weight of the plate varies, depending on the gravity of the wood and the thickness of the plate. The total net weight of 9 plates is just below 3200 grs or 7 lbs or 113 ounces . ; the gross weight incl. packing material will be below 5 kilos or 11 lbs or 176 ounces.
