Vintage Dansk Designs Turtle Tortoise Silver Plated Paperweight.

Large, very rare turtle/tortoise.

The Turtle was part of a series of larger Dansk paperweights that have a two tone matt and gloss silver plated finish.

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

Made of silver-plated zinc in Japan in the 1970s/80s.

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.

It is approximately 5cm high and 9cm wide. It weighs 500g.

Very good vintage condition with only very minor signs of age.

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

These cute paperweights make wonderful gifts.

The paperweight you receive may not be the actual one shown in the photo but will be in very similar condition.

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.
