moreA rare piece of mid-century pottery produced in Denmark by Royal Copenhagen. This is a LARGE piece and is shown with an 8 oz mug for comparison. A tankard or a display piece. Either is appropriate. The glaze is extremely tactile in shades running from blue both darker and lighter to purple. Green, white and yellow add to the artistic work.
The underside has a stamp reading LUNNING COLLECTION:
Excerpted from Ginger Moro’s “The Mystery Designers For Georg Jensen USA on the website for JCKonline (June 1, 1996): The post-war perspective of the Jensen New York store changed drastically in 1949 when Lunning hired a new manager, a Dane named Kai Dessau. What had become an unwieldy general store selling mostly American-made merchandise was transformed into a trade center for Nordic handicraft and decorative art. Lunning was excited by the high quality and elegance of what in the ’50s came to be called Scandinavian Modern, and decided to supply moral and financial support. His Lunning Prize, a traveling scholarship to be awarded each year to two outstanding young Nordic craftsmen or industrial designers, was first presented on his 70th birthday, Dec. 21, 1951. The $400 awards were funded by profits from the New York Jensen shop sales.
A: Alumina or aluminum oxide is a glaze made of silica, alumina and flux. Alumina is a refractory material that helps make the glaze's expansion and contraction aiding the glaze fit to the clay work.

A 4 with a dot and the letter E for the designer.

The condition is beautiful with no crazing at all. Note the beautifully glazed medallion on the inside on the bottom. The only small flaw is a glaze chip shown in the photo, top to the side of the tankard by the handle. This piece weighs almost 3 lbs. less
