This 3 litre capacity Margrethe mixing bowl was originally designed by Danish industrial designer Jacob Jensen in 1954 whilst working at the design studio of Sigvard Bernadotte and Acton Bjorn. Created for Rosti, the mixing bowl was named by Bernadotte, who was the brother of Queen Ingrid of Denmark, after his niece who would later become Queen Margrethe II of Denmark. It has a rubber anti-slip ring around the base for stability, a pouring spout on one side of the bowl and a flange handle on the opposite side. Compression moulded in melamine formaldehyde, the bowl has become a classic piece of Danish design and was awarded the ID Classic Prize in 1985, a Danish industrial design award. This modern example dates to the 2000s.
