Nymølle is pronounced Neemurlla. Shortly before the second world war the Fuurstrøm factory was set up in Denmark to produce domestic wares that had traditionally been imported. The impending war threatened supply from outside. The company produced inexpensive earthenware goods and fulfilled its purpose.
After the war production of more artistic lines started under the name Nymølle. Almost all the the output from the firm for the first decade after the war was designed by Bjørn Wiinblad. Other designers were employed as Wiinblad became busier with a wide variety of design work, and Nymølle enjoyed a high degree of success during the 1960s. In the mid-1970s the parent company went bankrupt and all its interests were sold except Nymølle. Nymølle struggled for a couple of years, and was then bought out by Bjørn Wiinblad.
