High/Low: Bright Enameled Pitchers with Wrapped Handles

One good pitcher, it seems, leads to another. A few weeks ago, just after we featured architect Ben Allen’s ode to vintage Dansk, the Scandinavian design company, newly owned by Food52, reissued the very Jens Quistgaard 1956 pitchers on display.

Not surprisingly, the Dansk reissues, with their signature wrapped handles, immediately sold out. But we’re happy to report that we’ve just discovered another surprise source, undeniably Dansk inspired and at a good price.
