When Royal Copenhagen Porcelain took over the Anton Michelsen silver company in 1968, designers from both disciplines were encouraged to collaborate (see profile). Here are an interesting pair of ear clips by the artistic director of the Aluminia Fajence division of Royal Copenhagen, Niels Thorsson. The cast porcelain has been hand decorated with brown and gold and set with a silver clasp fitting.
