An Arne Bang vase probably from the 1930/40s.  Unique pieces usually have an incised mark like this, on production pieces marks are typically printed and have a model number but as with most Danish ceramics of this period it isn't an exact science.

Difficult to say. Many Danish studio potters of this period were quite varied in where they worked. He made piece for Holmgaard, Ipsen, had a studio for a while with Carl Halier. He also had his own studio from 1932-51. I would think the latter because there is no studio mark on it but I cannot be certain.

Kevin - Did you get this from the UK ? Or import direct? Never see things like this anywhere.

I got it from a dealer in Denmark last year.

Very few items like this turn up in the UK. While there are a few collector-dealers around and you see the odd bit on ebay I don't know of any serious dealers in Scandinavian ceramics in the UK. You have to really search for people selling these things at decent prices even in Denmark and Sweden as most end up with dealers in the US who then sell them at very high prices.

Nice piece. I've only seen a couple at the fairs and they've always been out of my price range.

Newark fair used to have 3 or 4 Scandinavian pottery dealers, 2 still stand but they're finding it harder to source quality pots

A small vase and dish by Arne Bang. The vase has his impressed mark but it is difficult to see in a photo. The dish is unmarked but is by him and was probably done c1930 for Holmegaard

Despite the fact that it has been stated in a few publications that the incised marks are unique and the painted marks are not, in our experience this is not true. In fact if you look at the picture of the jug above, it has an incised mark, and is definitely not unique, as I have three of them on my website at the moment :)

We have spoken with members of the Bang family, and according to them, all the items made by the studio were hand thrown, as that was the most economical way to do it at the time. Very few items are "unique" (or all of them are, depending on how you look at it, as no two are identical), however, we have handled a few items with the word "unik" incised on the base, so I would guess those were in fact unique.
