Moving away from the bright, bold and beautiful of Delphis pottery, here's a little dish with a touch more subtlety.
It only measures 4 inches (10.5cm) square but for its size, this little pin tray is big on good looks. it's heavily built with chunky side walls, its colours are intense and earthy, and the impressed leaf design in the base gives it an added element of style.
The dish was designed by Einar Johansen. It was made by Soholm, Denmark and dates from the 1960s. Einar Joahansen is probably better known for his blue series of vases and dishes but I think this little pot is every bit as good. It is certainly in the Scandinavian style. It may be the impressed motif in the base, but in some ways it reminds me of the work of Jorgen Mogensen for Royal Copenhagen.
I've listed quite a few bits of Soholm pottery in the past, you can see some of them here: Soholm pottery
