Dansk Silver Donkey Paperweight Swedish Danish Designs Gifts Office Work Job Presents Retro 1
Dansk Designs Silver Plated Donkey Paperweight.
Very good vintage condition with some minor signs of age as shown in the photos.
Comes in its presentation box.
This cute paperweight is made of silver-plated zinc.
Designed by award winning Swedish silversmith, Gunnar Cyren in the early 1970s
Made for Dansk Designs in Japan in the 1970s/80s.
Has ‘Dansk Designs, Japan’ imprinted 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. Would make a wonderful gift.
Dansk Designs was founded 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.
