For The Home: Cathrineholm

Recently my wife and I decided to start collecting Cathrineholm enamelware.  They were designed Grete Prytz Kittelson in Norway in the late 1950s.  They have become extremely collectible and sell for a premium on Etsy and Ebay.  We are dedicated to finding them the old fashioned way and in the last two weeks we have found two of them.  I bought the white and blue piece from another picker for $20.  My wife picked up the white and green one for $5 at a garage sale.  These pieces commonly sell for $80-$120 but we are going to keep them.

  1. Love them! Have yet to find any myself "in the wild" and would have a tough time parting with it if I did...

  2. Thanks! I feel so lucky to have found 2 in two weeks. I have also looked for them at most of the vintage shops in Portland and have not seen any for sale. Good luck with your search
