Gustavsberg Versa Vintage Egg Cup
Gustavsberg Versa Vintage Egg Cup
This is a classic Berså egg cup from Gustavsberg, a long-established Swedish tableware manufacturer. This is vintage. The designer is Stig Lindberg, one of Sweden's leading mid-century masters. Lindberg created this leaf design in 1961. Berså is a word that is not used much in Swedish these days, but it means an arbor, and it refers to a space set up for people to take a break, such as in a corner of a park.
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, but there are only about 4 to 5 hours of sunlight 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 greenery of Bertha has a mysterious charm that brings fresh green color and a refreshing breeze to the dining table.
There is also a reprint version of the Versa Egg Cup, but it has a bowl-shaped, rounded shape. The body type is a vintage unique form.
The reprint version is also a lighter green color and the leaf shape is more uniform than the vintage version. The characteristics of vintage are the vividness of the green color and the subtle fluctuations in each leaf. The back stamp is also beautiful and unique. The backstamp on the reprint version is the company's anchor symbol, and Bertha's original backstamp is gone.

Stig Lindberg (1916-1982)
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.
