■ Product introduction Bersa series coffee cups designed in 1961 by Stig Lindberg, the master of modern design representing Sweden.

There are reprinted versions of Versa tea cups, but this small coffee cup has not been reprinted and is only available as a vintage item. In addition, compared to the leaf pattern of the reprinted version, the leaves of the vintage product have a lush green color and are very well colored.

It is no exaggeration to say that half of the year in Northern Europe is winter. Not only is it extremely cold, but in winter there are only four to five hours of sunshine. The characteristic of Scandinavian tableware is that it is full of designs that make you feel warm even on such a winter day. The lush green of the leaves is used to bring fresh green color to the dining table. Bersa (Bersa, bell show) means gazebo (arbor), and it has a design that makes you feel the cool fika in the afternoon spent in a corner of the garden.
