Dansk Designs Silver Plated Pelican Paperweight 1970s/80s

The pelican is one of the rarest creatures in this range.

It is in excellent vintage condition with only very minor signs of age - this pelican is in unusually good condition.

This cute paperweight is made of silver-plated zinc.

Designed by award winning Swedish silversmith, Gunnar Cyren, for Dansk Designs in the early 1970s.

It was made in Japan in the 1970s/80s and has ‘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.

As well as looking great, these paperweights are extremely tactile and have a real quality feel about them and make wonderful gifts.
___________________________________________________________________________

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 Danish and 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.
