Nice little pot, this. I'm guessing 60s-ish. The mark says KK - I'm aware of Knud Kyhn having a KK mark, but he was Danish and his mark was more of an impressed monogram, so I'm not expecting this to be one of his. Anyone recognise this one?

There's also one on ebay listed as Mid Century Pottery Norway Circles & Rays Vase KK. It has an impressed KK mark on the base plus impressed numbers 359, plus handwritten kk and numbers 359/32, and made in Norway handpainted

Found another, also ?

This is his bio. from dphtrading.com

Knud Kyhn was a very productive artist who throughout his life created works of art that are still valued all over the world. In Denmark, he is especially known for his many animal figurines, which he created through his many years of service at Royal Copenhagen. He worked for the Royal Porcelain Factory in the years 1903-1910, 1924-1932 and 1936-1967, interrupted only by a period by Herman A. Kahler in Naestved 1920-1924 and at Bing & Grondahl 1908-1915 and 1933-1935

The shapes of the pots marked KK that I've found on google images are reminiscent of Kahler's ones, so if this is his work then it may have been made while he was at Naestved.

There was a Norwegian pottery that was started in 1947 by Rolf Hansen called Konsberg Keramik. Maybe a possibility?

From the couple of examples I've found on google images for Kongsberg Keramikk it's a handdrawn kbg rather than a KK

Yes. Two reasons why that looks like the same pottery. One is the KK, the other is the little white rim showing at the top. Nice vase, too – I'd buy it if I didn't think the postage from the US would be about 6 million quid. But we still don't know who it's by!

Found a few others, but without the kk - google "Mid Century Modern Danish Hand made In Norway Terracotta Pottery Bowl Blue Red" and "Stylish Mid-Century Modern Scandinavian Bowl from Norway hand painted L@@K"

I'm wondering if it was an offshoot of Elle, Norway?

Yeah, interesting. Some of those images have something of the look about them (Larholm particularly) but you'd think this particular design would show up somewhere. I want more of it anyway - it's just my cup of tea, and the glaze is beautifully silky.
(By the way, thanks for all your help and interest on this and many previous threads Naomi!)

Ooh - here's a possibility. Kråkerøy Keramikk - who I've never heard of, have a KK mark.

ID confirmed by Kjetil Almvik of Norway:

"This pot is made by "Kråkerøy keramikk" in Fredrikstad. The company started
in 1945 and closed down around 1965. This pot is made in the late 50's or
beginning of the 60's."
