Cathrineholm introduced the Lotus pattern in 1963 and they were in production until 1965. The form and design of the bowl was designed by Grete Prytz Kittelsen and the Lotus pattern was designed by Arne Carson. It was well know that Grete Prytz Kittelsen disliked the Lotus patter and wasn't shy about sharing her dislike for the design that was applied to her bowls.

 "Using a lotus design to make a flower ruins the plates, in my opinion." - Grete Prytz Kittelsen

Regardless of the strife between the designers of the bowl and the Lotus pattern Cathrineholm introduced iconic pieces that command a high price in today's market.
