Porcelain Figurine Elephant - small by H. Orthwein for AS Ćmielów

The porcelain figure Elephant designed in 1959 by Hanna Orthwein. Nowadays, it was produced by AS Ćmielów. It was handmade of the highest quality porcelain and then decorated with ceramic paints by the painters. The product has a special protection in the form of undercoat and glazed signs. Products manufactured in our factory have, among others, the factory logo underneath. The figurine is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity, which includes information about manual production and decoration, as well as information about the product (name, name of the designer, year of design). In case of figurines, a unique product number is additionally entered into the certificate (assigned according to the factory marking systems).


The designs of the first figures were created in the Institute of Industrial Design around 1955. A group of designers, including Henryk Jędrasiak, Lubomir Tomaszewski, Hanna Orthwein and Mieczysław Naruszewicz, were tasked with designing intimate ceramic sculptures to decorate a modern interior. In total, about one hundred models were created, which depict mainly animals, less often people.


Hanna Orthwein, born 1916 in Warsaw, studied at the City School of Decorative Arts and Painting in Warsaw from 1935 to 1937, and then attended the Blanka Mercere School of Fine Arts in Warsaw (1937-1939). In 1948-1951, she studied at Warsaw's WSSP (later Academy of Fine Arts) in Professor Julia Kotarbińska's ceramics studio.

Editor's notes

Figurka porcelanowa Słonik to piękna, syntetyczna i uproszczona forma sylwetki, w której można dostrzec chęć przedstawienia charakterystycznych cech zwierzęcia. Mimo, że zaprojektowana pół wieku temu, wciąż zachwyca i wpisuje się w nowoczesne wnętrza.
