This wall tile was designed and made by the Hungarian designer Joseph Simon for Søholm in the 1970’s. It has a floral design on a beige/grey ground, with brightly coloured blue and red glaze. It is signed by the maker on the front and bears the impressed factory marks to the back.
During its 50 years on this planet, a little piece unfortunately broke off on the corner, it is almost invisible when it is hanging on the wall, but we have adjusted the price because of it. So! Don’t miss your chance to get your hands on this collector’s item to a reduced price.

Many of the greatest ceramics craftsmen and women of Denmark, has at some point either, worked or done apprenticeship at Søholm. Søholm has established itself as one of the top makers of Scandinavia midcentury icons of stoneware.
The factory closed in 1996.
