Extremely rare and iconic ‘Saturn’ bowl by the much sought after Cathrineholm enamelware in enamelled steel. Grete Prytz Kittelson designed the Saturn bowls in 1958 and won the prestigious Grand Prix at the Trienelle in Milan in the same year. These were among her first pieces for Cathrineholm. The uniqueness of the design gave it a place on the “Emalje Design – Grete Prytz Kittelson” book cover (book not included in sale). The colour scheme is perfect with contrasting colours (in a very modernist style). Much more rare than any other pattern, this design was also featured in the Grete Prytz Kittelsen Exhibition at the National Museum of Art and Design in 2008. Her recent death only turned her creations even more popular and very collectable. Almost 60 years old! In great vintage condition with only minor bites/crazing around the rims that we’ve tried to show in photos but all consistent with normal use (only adds to their charm in our opinion). It is unmarked but definitely original Grete Prytz Kittelsen Saturn bowl. The bowl is much in the style of the Krenit bowls designed by Herbert Krenchel, around the same time, that we also have for sale. Also please note sale is only for one bowl although we have a second one available to purchase separately. Overall, this is a superb opportunity to own a rare modernist piece that will enhance any Retro Mid Century Modern shelf.
