The characteristic enamel bowls from Cathrineholm found their way into thousands of homes in the 1960s, particularly in Scandinavia and the US. Several of the products from Cathrineholm won gold at the Triennale in Milan in 1957. This level of success resulted in Cathrineholm having real problems delivering the quantity of items required to meet customer demand. The enamelled dishes, bowls and pans that Grete Prytz Kittelsen created for Cathrineholm are design icons and coveted collectibles today. Grete Prytz Kittelsen was associated with Cathrineholm until the factory closed in 1971. After the closure of the factory, the legendary Scandinavian design gem was consigned to oblivion, despite Kittelsen choosing in some cases to produce enamelware at other factories.
