Dansk Designs Silver Plated Polar Bear Paperweight.
It is in very good vintage condition. It may have some minor signs of age. This cute paperweight is made of silver-plated zinc and comes with its original box. It was designed by renowned Swedish silversmith, Gunnar Cyren, for Dansk Designs 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 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.
