Dansk Designs Pig Silver Paperweight Boxed Swedish Mens Fathers Day Dads Gifts Presents
Vintage Dansk Designs Pig Paperweight Silver Plated.
Excellent vintage condition. May have very minor signs of age.
This cute paperweight is made of silver-plated zinc and comes in its original presentation box (the card inset inside the box is torn).
It was designed by award-winning Swedish silversmith, Gunnar Cyren, for Dansk in the early 1970s and made in Japan in the 1970s/80s.
As well as looking great, these paperweights are extremely tactile and have a real quality feel about them. It would make a wonderful gift.
It 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.
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.
Note that we have attempted to show and state the condition as accurately as possible but this is a pre-loved, vintage item and some minor signs of age and/or use are to be expected. There may also be slight variations in the colours shown due to lighting, the camera lens and the device the image is viewed through.
