■ Product introduction This is an 18 cm plate made by Gustavsberg, a Swedish pottery manufacturer. The series name Blohüssar means "blue cavalry". The uniforms of Swedish cavalrymen have traditionally been the same blue as the national flag, and even now the cavalry around the Royal Palace in Stockholm, the capital, wear blue uniforms to protect them. Blohüssar incorporates the blue armor worn by the cavalry into the design as a design.

Gustavsberg's tableware is basically decorated with a method called "transcription", in which paper on which the design is drawn is pasted, but this is a relatively rare hand-painted decoration for the company. The characteristic of the Blöhüssar series is that each piece has a rather uneven blue color. Sometimes the whiteness of the base remains and the blue is not enough, and sometimes the glaze is crushed and the color is almost blue.

This work was manufactured for only three years from 1968. There seems to be a point that it was difficult to make the same one as a standard product because of the large individual differences in the blue color in the background. Even now, in the vintage market, Blöhüssar tends to be highly evaluated as it looks beautiful.

Since then, Lindberg has released numerous works as a standard-bearer of Swedish modernism in the middle of the 20th century. The Gustavsberg workshop reached its heyday in the era when Lindberg was active, and even now the works of that time are recognized as the golden age called "mid-century" and have high value.

Lindberg's studio was called G-Studion, and young painters were showing great skill. Lindberg retired in 1980 and opened a workshop in Italy where he retired, but died there two years later.
