We live in an imperfect world. We all have our own flaws as well. If you don't mind a few flea bites, a little bit of crazing, you'll find plenty of bargains here.

Look closely at the larger pictures and you should be able to spot the flaws.

Bjorn Wiinblad 12 month plates in black and white

Bjorn Wiinblad Month Plates

In black or red on a white background

Many of Wiinblad's month plates from Nymolle have problems with crazing. It's the first thing I look for when I buy them. However, over the years I have accumulated a good supply of crazed plates. Usually you have to look closely to see the crazing. When a plate hangs on the wall, it will look just fine. I offer these plates at a bargain price of 45 DKK each. A full set of 12 plates would be 480 DKK. (Subject to availability)

Artist: Nils Thorsson    product # 1714    1930's

this early example of Nils Thorsson's work unfortunately has some damage to it. There appears to be a crack where the neck joins the body. You can see it clearly in the alternate picture. It does not go all the way around the neck, however. There is very light crazing that I didn't see until I was looking at the pictures. Then I had to look hard to see it on the vase.
