Catherine Holm Ironworks, Grete Prytz Kittelsen Lotus pattern fondue pot.


  • Details
    The Cathrine Holm ironworks were founded in 1829 outside Halden in southern Norway and enjoyed their heyday in the 1960s and 70s. Cathrineholm initially made nails, ship chains and castings, in addition to bathtubs and agricultural implements. In 1907, the factory started up as an enamel works, producing contemporary enamelled kitchenware for many years until 1954, when Cathrineholm converted its coarse production in iron to fine production in steel – which quickly proved a success. It was also in 1954 that Cathrineholm started working with the young Norwegian enamel artist, Grete Prytz Kittelsen. The enamelled dishes, bowls and pans that Grete Prytz Kittelsen created for Cathrineholm are design icons and coveted collectibles today. Grete Prytz Kittelsen was associated with Cathrineholm until the factory closed in 1971. This fondue pot is complete all the way to the saucer under the burner, in never used condition with one tiny chip on the edge of the lid pictured next to a nickel for scale.
