It's been a long time since I've been excited by an op shop find! Today was the exception, a Cathrineholm pot! I've long admired them and they look particularly good en mass (google Cathrineholm to see what I mean), but for now I'm just so glad to have one. A few chips on the enamel on the lid still can't dampen my enthusiasm.
Made in Norway I wonder how many made it to New Zealand? The design on the pot is "Lotus", it instantly transports you to the 1960's don't you think?
There is an amazing fan blog of Cathrineholm, you can find it here, it's quite an interesting read.
I think I'll use my new find as a fruit bowl and enjoy it on my bench each day! Have you had any exciting thrifting finds lately?
