Elle (Norway)

Post by Pip on February 16th 2008, 10:27 pm

This is obviously a very nice quality vase, the finish is lovely, but unfortunately I couldn't find out anything about this company online. If anyone else has any of their pieces or knows anything at all about Elle please could they post in this thread.

hello, this company started in 1942 in Torkildstranda in DrÝbak near Oslo. It was lead by Tor Samuelsen. The company produced right up until 1967. These ceramic peices are now collectables i Norway. If you would like to have further reading of Norwegian ceramics there is a very good book: Moderne Antikviteter ( Norwegian ceramic, signatures and marks 1900-1960
hope this is of some help.

Elle, Norway

Post by vizibell on February 1st 2011, 7:17 pm

I did manage to get the Elle pot (along with a tall glass vase that I have posted too). It is 9.5cm tall, sort of teal blue in colour and the straight vertical lines are red. It has a smooth shiny glaze.The base is marked, by hand, 902 (I think) E ll E Norway and a signature/initials CL..?
