A very rare Danish sculptural stoneware lidded jar with Nordic mythical figures by Bode Willumsen (1895-1989) and made in 1928. The heavily made jar is of triangular shape, the sides constructed as framed panels molded in relief with mythical figures. The jar has a wide triangular top rim with a similarly shaped recess within which sits the cover which is mounted with three sculptural lion like creatures forming the finial. The jar is decorated in matted dark red ox blood on a celadon ground with elements of the celadon showing through. The jar has Royal Copenhagen makers marks to the base along with an incised monogram for Bode Willumsen and is numbered 20160. The inside cover also bears a makers mark and partial original paper label.

In good condition.
