Description
Michael Andersen and Sons Pottery began in the late 1800's as a small pottery run by Jens Michael Andersen who had trained at Hjorth's Pottery. It was situated in Ronne on the small island of Bornholm, Denmark, which has often been called the Danish Potter's Isle. Production began with kitchen items and decorative pieces in the Greek style.

Andersen had four sons who grew up working in the pottery and as they grew they developed their own style and artistic flare. Their designs and glazes won awards and in 1930 the new Persia technique used in glazing won a gold medal at the World Exhibition in Brussels.
