A suite of Herbert Krenchel bowl
Three original bowls,designed in 1953. Good condition (see photos)
Diameter 12,5 cm, 3 bowls, enamel.
The name Krenit is a combination of the name Krenchel and Eternit (a fibre cement which is used for the coating on the bowl's outside). The bowl has a distinct design with its matt black outside, thin edge and clear colored enamel inside. In 1954, the bowl won a gold medal for its unique design in Triennale (Milano, Italy). Up until the production stopped in 1966 the bowl had been produced in more than 1 million units.
