A small, unsigned Saxbo vase from the period after 1958. I think this glaze is known as "marrow"

A nice early piece of Saxbo with a mark that dates it to the early 1930s

A few basics on Saxbo Marks (and history of the factory)

Earliest mark from the late 1920s has the original name "Nylund and Krebs" after Gunnar Nylund and Natalie Krebs the two who set up the pottery.  Nylund was a potter and Krebs a chemist who knew about glazes. They acquired Patrick Nordstrom's pottery studio after his death in 1928 and set up their pottery there.

Nylund left in 1930 to go to Rorstrand in Sweden and the factory was then named Saxbo. Marks from 1930 have the name Saxbo or stylised flames (or both) this was in use in the early 1930s.  See the picture directly above. The word Copenhagen is also sometimes included.

Some time in the mid-1930s they changed the symbol to a yin yang mark as in the photos above in this thread.  Pieces up to 1949 also had the word Danmark with an `a' stamped on the base.

From 1950 the spelling was changed to Denmark and was used with the same yin yang mark  until the closure of the factory in 1968 when Krebs retired.  

She broke all the moulds and took the glaze recipes with her so that there could be no later copies.

oh! I was told the story of Krebs destroying her glaze recipes last week so put 2 and 2 together.
The dealer said that Nylund was able to reproduce many of her glazes after her death despite her attempts to take them to the grave

It is a well-known story. Less well-known is the connection with Nordstrom's studio in Islev. I have a Museum catalogue from 1974 on Nylund that shows a picture of Nylund and Krebs with a potter called Olsen at the site in 1929.
