Midcentury Table Settings- Dansk Kobenstyle
The Kobenstyle line was originally manufactured by Danish supplier Glud & Marstrand, but, in 1966, Dansk switched to a French supplier. The earlier Danish-made pieces are marked with Dansk's "four ducks" logo, and are generally more sought-after by collectors than the later French ones. The initials "IHQ" are Jens Quistgaard's mark.
The kobenstyle collection is modern and practical, with a variety of colors, and considerably lighter than le crueset cast iron cookware.
During the time of it's production, the following pieces were created:
Made of enameled formed sheet steel, Dansk Kobenstyle is lighter weight than enameled cast iron cookware such as Le Creuset. On the upside, it's easier to heft, but on the downside, it doesn't cook as evenly or retain heat as well.
Pots are usually yellow, red, and blue, but they also come in turquoise, chocolate brown, almond, white, orange, black, and kelly and hunter green. The interiors are usually white enamel.
