Copenhagen 12 cm pot & saucer Rosa

We call this the Castle Pot since it is inspired by a pot made at the royal castle of Fredensborg in 1860. Over time, production moved to smaller potters in Copenhagen, where it was made until plastic pots began to grow in popularity in the 1960s. Steffen Berg found his inspiration in a beautiful pot he saw years ago in a former nursery. Today, our potters make the pot in a small village near Lucca in Tuscany.

The name hearkens back to the site where it all began in 1942: Victor Berg inherited a ceramics shop on Rantzausgade in the N√∏rrebro neighbourhood of Copenhagen. Victor wanted to bring a bit of life and colour into the war-depressed lives of his fellow Copenhageners. He decided the best way to do so would be to add flowers to the shop. The unique combination of fresh flowers and aged ceramics soon made the store a popular place to visit and shop.
