Viking Fruit Bowl
Lovely viking fruit bowl (large) by Jens Quistaard for Dansk. This model, 830, was designed by Jens in 1958 and is a shallow flared out design with two viking horns that double as handles. Made of staved teak pieces, this another iconic form from Jens Quistaard and fits well in his various teak kitchenware goods made for Dansk, like his salad bowls, viking ice buckets and salt & pepper grinders.
Viking mania hit Scandinavian design in the mid 1950s as a respect to their past, but integrated into modern styling. Even later Tiki-ware sometimes mimicked the popular viking ships.
