Handsome 6-piece set of mid-century Danish modern enameled cast iron cookware designed by Michael Lax for Copco. Six-piece set includes one seven-inch orange pot and lid, one seven-inch yellow pot and lid, one orange ten-inch skillet, and one yellow twelve-inch skillet. They are in wonderful vintage condition overall. They do show signs that they were used but nothing major. I did notice a small ½ inch crack in the enamel by the handle on the yellow skillet. Please see photos. Circa 1960s-1980s
