What's in Your Pantry?

Cathrineholm enamelware pieces in the popular Lotus pattern 
designed by Grete Prytz Kittelsen, little treasures of sleek Scandinavian artistry, 
are popping out of cupboards and onto mid-century enthusiasts' must-have lists.

The Cathrineholm ironworks began in Halden, Norway in 1907 making wrought iron products and agricultural equipment. Times changed and production turned from farm implements to enamelware. The factory closed in 1970.

The festive products have had a resurgence in popularity. Collectors can find the bright kitchenware on eBay and Etsy and occasionally at estate sales. Is Cathrineholm part of your cooking past or present?

These are lovely! They seem perfect for eating summer ice cream on a porch.

You have a great eye for style and value, especially while thrift sailing in the neighborhood! I'm just giving you $20 bucks for mad money to be my personal shopper.
