Sunshine on a grey day

It was such a treat to find this sunny teaset in these grey, wet and foggy times. Egersund Unique is handpainted and the pieces therefore have an individual look. On the olivegreenish/ brown edges you can clearly see the brushstrokes. Unique was designed by Kaare Block Johansen in 1971 and was in production until 1976, just a few years before Egersund Fajanse closed down in 1979.

Unique has the exact same design as Korulen, also by Kaare Block Johansen, but which has a lovely sunflower pattern by Unni Margrethe Johnsen. I have found quite a bit of both of these sunny designs. I so love the colors and those amazing early 70s lines. The teapot is simply amazing!

I've written quite a bit about these before, so I won't bore you by repeating myself. If you're interested, you can find quite a bit of information here and here. Wish you all a great week!
