Rosti Margrethe Mixing Bowls Set of 3 Denmark 1950s Orange

A rare set of 3 nesting original Margrethe mixing bowls in bring dark orange.

They have the original Rosti back-stamp from the 1950s.

The Margrethe mixing bowl was named after the Swedish Princess who later became Queen Margrethe II of Denmark.

This bowl is still produced by Rosti today and can be found in most Danish kitchens.  It has also been copied by many other manufacturers over the years.  It is a Danish success story and has even had its own stamp in 1997.

Each bowl has a handle/grip of one side and a lip on the other.  There is a non-slip rubber ring on the bottom to help the bowl cling to the bench.  It is heat resistant up to 70 degrees Celsius.

The non-slips rings on this vintage set of bowls have hardened and no longer grip, and there is a tiny nick near the spout on one bowl and some signs of use in the base of the bowls.

The Margrethe Bowl was designed by Jacob Jensen (1926-2015) in 1954 whilst working with Bernadotte and Bjorn.

Jacob Jensen is most famous for his work with Bang & Olufsen from 1965.  His designs have made it into the permanent design collections at many museums around the world.

Rosti began manufacturing plastic products in Denmark in 1944. In 1993 Rosti merged with Dutch company Mepal are still operating and producing Margrethe mixing bowls today.
