This is a coffee cup from the Berså series, a masterpiece designed in 1961 by Stig Lindberg, one of Sweden's leading modern design masters.

There are reprints of Bertha's tea cups, but this small bowl-shaped coffee cup has not been reprinted and is only available as a vintage item. In addition, compared to the reprinted leaf pattern, the vintage version has a different leaf color, such as the leaf color being more lush and vibrant.

It is no exaggeration to say that Northern Europe is a region where half of the year is winter. Not only is it extremely cold, there are only about 4 to 5 hours of daylight in winter. A feature of Scandinavian tableware is that it is full of designs that give you a sense of warmth even on winter days. The lush green leaves are a color that brings fresh green color to the dining table. Bersa means arbor, and the design evokes the feeling of a cool afternoon fika spent in a corner of a garden.
