Jens H. Quistgaard designed the KOBENSTYLE cookware in 1955. The name refers to the Danish name Københavnerstil (Copenhagen style), as they wanted to imply that this was Danish style from Copenhagen. The KOBENSTYLE series consisted of a wide range of products, in four different colored enamel; turquoise, yellow, light green and red. The light green was only kept in production shortly, while the three other colors remained in production until 1985. In 1971 two additional color options were introduced: white or black.
Aesthetics and functionality combined in one product - an extremely appealing silhouette with glossy enamel and the ability to serve straight from the pot or cook at the table - the cross handle on the lid could also be used a trivet for the pot and the teak shoes on the cast iron fuel holder to avoid any scratching to the tabletop. The set is much lighter than other enameled cast iron cookware.
Pot measures 7.1"W x 4.5"H
Cast iron fuel holder measures 7.3"W x 5"H
In good vintage condition with normal signs of usage and age, mostly on the inside of the pot and underneath the pot. Please see the photos.
