Cathrineholm was a factory based in Halden, Norway. It started as an ironworks around 1827, before transitioning to the more modern enamelware in 1907 and eventually closing down around 1972. As an enamelware company, Cathrineholm produced a variety of dishes over the decades. Their most popular line hit the market in the 1960s: the mid-century modern lotus series. “White as porcelain—harder than steel!” said one advertisement. These colorful dishes came in a range of mod colors adorned in lotus leaves. The primary artist behind Cathrineholm’s lotus enamelware was Grete Prytz Kittelsen. She designed the dish forms and colors, and Arne Clausen designed the iconic lotus leaf that the factory added to them.
