Dansk Cow Silver Paperweights Danish Swedish Designs Scandinavian
Dansk Paperweight Cow Silver Plated.
Good vintage condition with some signs of age.
These cute paperweights are made of silver-plated zinc.
They were designed by award-winning Swedish silversmith, Gunnar Cyren, for Dansk Designs in the early 1970s and made in Japan in the 1970s/80s. Aswell as looking great, these paperweights are extremely tactile and have a real quality feel about them. They would make a wonderful gift.
They have ‘Dansk Designs, Japan’ on its base plus EPZ signifying its manufacturing technique of electro-plated zinc, a technology that the Japanese led the world in at the time.
** Barnyard Cow: Good vintage condition. Has some pitting (tiny indentations) in his back which is reflected in the price.
Dansk Designs was started in the 1950s by an American who toured Europe seeking out talented designers to produce a range of homewares he could sell to the US market. The range was designed to showcase Scandinavian design to an international audience and due to their wonderful combination of form and function Dansk Design items have become highly collectible including in their ‘home country’ of Denmark.
