RARE Antique Dansk Silver-Plated Rare Wood Pepper Mill – Quistgaard Design – Denmark IHQ. This is a beautiful and well made butcher block rosewood peppermill by Danish sculptor and designer Jens Quistgaard. Grain of the rosewood is superb. In very good used vintage condition as shown. There is one very small, almost unnoticeable indentation on the wood above the silver plating – see photos. Silver plating has some tarnish which I have not polished out. Pepper mill is approximately 4-3/4 tall and weighs approximately 8 oz. Happy to answer any questions. Here is some background on the designer.. Jens Harald Quistgaard was a Danish sculptor and designer, known principally for his work for the American company Dansk Designs, where he was chief designer from 1954 and for the following three decades. Though a sculptor and grounded in traditional handicrafts, he quickly established a career as an industrial designer. From the mid-1950s his tableware and kitchenware designs became synonymous with Scandinavian modern and found their way into millions of homes in the USA, Europe and Japan. With his international orientation and success he was groundbreaking, and he had great significance for the place which Danish design acquired in the minds of many Americans. In 1958 he received the Neiman Marcus Award and during the following years he was represented at major museums in Europe and the USA. Many of Jens Quistgaards works are still produced today.
