Grete Prytz Kittelsen

I went thrift shopping again yesterday. Found the big green tray in the picture, to go with the rest of my collection. At $2 it was a bargain and a half! These were designed by Grete Prytz Kittelsen for Cathrineholm in the 50s. Prytz Kittelsen is one of the top Norwegian product and jewellery designers, and she is now 90 years old. She used to be married to top modernist architecht Korsmo. I'm thinking I should find some photos of her house - she has fantastic interiors.

I`m a huge Grete Pryds Kittilsen fan myself!
So hard to find these enamel items in nice condition these days, they are almost always badly scrached. But sometimes one get lucky, and 2$ for the tray, wow! Hope you find photos of her home I`d love to see them!
