Lucky finds & Kitchen sneak peek

Magic 'shrooms...

Kaj Franck's amazing mushroom design on a Finel enamel bowl.

I have been lusting after one of these for the longest time. Next to impossible to find in these climes, I have been close on more than one occasion to ordering one on Etsy and have it shipped over from the US. But with a going rate of 75 usd and factoring in the shipping costs, it never quite seemed the right time to spend more than 100 usd on a bowl.

Lucky I resisted temptation this long (for once) ! Because I eventually came across this beautiful specimen on ebay Belgium, and NOBODY was interested. Unbelievable, right ?! Mine for 26 eur. And since the seller was local, I didn't even have to cough up any shipping costs. Yay !

A while back, I also found this Scheurich vase (with Inca decor) for a whooping 3 eur. I love the colour. And from what I've noticed, the green glazes are pretty rare in West German pottery. So this a pretty lucky find as well.

Together with the Strehla planter, I now got a little green collection going in the kitchen. Yay, one more collection!

Putting it all together, you get something like this.

And vignette with cat. Of course.


  1. I adore the bowl - I have never seen anything like this before!

  2. I like the cathrineholm bowl!!!! Great! Greetings from Germany

  3. that looks great! i really love the still life painting about the cat :)

  4. the bowl is also on my wishing list ( for a long time)
    looks great and well done ( great price)

  5. I am ALWAYS on the look out for that bowl! I've been temped to go the e-bay route but I know I'm gonna find one of those bad boys any day now at a norwegian fleamarket!!

  6. This looks so gorgeous and stylish. I want one of those bowls now! I'll take the cat as well, please... Emma :)
