Stylish stripes – unique craftsmanship – painted by hand
Hammershøi’s distinctive profilings
The glass vase also features Hammershøi’s distinctive profiling and clear grooves, known from the ceramic vases. The vase is mouth-blown and has its own unique and beautiful shape.
Hammershøi Poppy is a modern floral service with the captivating beauty of the poppy. The poppy is a flower that contains both great strength and fragility. We see it everywhere in the Danish countryside, where it bravely withstands wind and the elements, but as soon as it is picked, it becomes sensitive and loses its leaves after a short time.
With its feminine table-setting appeal and roots in today’s floral megatrend, Hammershøi Poppy immediately attracted many fans – and the series is continuously expanded with several pieces specially designed for get-togethers with style: A teapot, teacup with saucer, plain-coloured mugs, dishes, vases, a candlestick and a tablecloth – and later eggcups, mini vases and a bonbonniere in the same poetic theme of delicate rose poppies full of life and movement, just like the rest of the dinner service.
The motifs in the Hammershøi Poppy series are created by artist Rikke Jacobsen, who has worked with the beauty of the poppy and actively used everything from the stem, the first buds to the flower in full bloom. With fantastic detail, the poppies wrap around the white Hammershøi dinner service, creating a beautiful contrast to the porcelain’s simple and graphic design.
Hammershøi Poppy, however, not only radiates beauty, but also quality and craftsmanship. 'The canvas’ for the pale rose poppies is the classic Hammershøi porcelain designed by Hans-Christian Bauer – and this combination gives you a wealth of possibilities. You can turn the table into a lovely flower field, or you can combine Poppy with the classic white Hammershøi service for a more subtle look.
Whatever you choose, you have the opportunity to make it both personal and poetic: Thanks to the asymmetrical arrangement of the motifs, you can turn and twist the individual pieces in countless ways, so that the green stems twist over the table and the dinner service blossoms like never before, for the benefit of you and your guests. You can also try playing with the way plates, bowls and cups are placed – depending on how you twist and turn them and turn them, you can create very different looks and styles.
In her work with the delicate rose variant of the poppy, Rikke Jacobsen has been particularly focused on the flower’s different stages of beauty: The strong, green stem, first bud and flower in full bloom with its pod and petals gathered in a rosette. You can feel her fascination with the flower in every brush stroke, and the result is the unique blend of meticulous naturalism and delicate poetry found in Hammershøi Poppy.

The Kähler story
The story of Kähler begins as early as 1839, when the Dutch potter Herman J. Kähler opens a small ceramics workshop in Næstved and turns the first Kähler vase. It marks the start of a unique design adventure that will one day resonate around the world. However, it is only when his son Herman A. Kähler takes over the famous workshop in 1875 that the ceramic adventure really begins.
