This is a classic Bersa sugar pot from Gustavsberg, a long-established Swedish tableware manufacturer. Stig Lindberg created this leaf pattern design in 1961. This is a vintage product. Bersa (Besho, Bersho) means arbor, and is a space set up in a corner of a park for people to take a break. In Northern Europe, where there are many winter days, this warm design lets you feel the fresh greenery.

There are reprint versions of Bertha, but the main difference is the lush green color of the leaf stalks. The reprint version has a lighter green color than the vintage version. Also, this sugar pot is not being resold in the reprint version. This item is missing the lid, but you can use a cork lid instead.

Born in Umeå, the central city of northern Sweden. Originally from Stockholm's art school Konstfack ( Learn painting at Konstfack. He joined Gustavsberg in 1937 and gradually rose to prominence under the tutelage of his mentor, Wilhelm Koge. Twelve years later, in 1949, he succeeded Koge as the company's art director in charge of design.

Since then, Lindberg has released numerous works as a standard bearer of Swedish modernism in the mid-20th century. During Lindberg's time, the Gustavsberg workshop was at its peak, and its works from that time are recognized as works from the golden period known as ``mid-century,'' and are highly valued. Lindberg's studio is called G-Studion, where young designers are demonstrating their skills and producing famous artists such as Lisa Larson.
