Herman A Kahler Keramik, Denmark

Post by NaomiM on August 6th 2012, 6:11 pm

Red lustre posy vase by Herman August Kahler, Denmark. Danish Art Pottery.

Inscribed HAK monogram. Stamped DANMARK.

From: http://www.ceramicstoday.com/articles/danish_ceramics7.htm -

Herman August Kähler introduced the HAK signature, which since that time has been the mark on all Kählers products. In 1883 Vilhelm Klein (1835-1913, architect) from "the Copenhagen Drawing School for Women" was looking for a pottery where he could have his students' ceramics fired. This resulted in a co-operation with Herman August Kähler. This co-operation gave Herman August the inspiration to start production of other items than all-night burners. He experimented again and again with glazes. The target was a red luster glaze, like the one used by the Italian maestro Giorgio from Gubbio in the 16th century. In 1888 he presented a ruby glaze which made him world famous. This ruby is today known as "Kähler red".




Couple of scuffs on the glaze showing the whitish ground:

This is my bi-annual pottery purchase - a hefty partially glazed stoneware lamp base by Nils Kähler, probably late 1950s / early 1960s design.

This is a nicely thrown medium size jug with a good, legible mark for HAK on the base but the decoration is at odds with any of the other HAK stuff I have seen anywhere. Why would that be, do you think?
