Stig Lindberg
Country of manufacture: Sweden
Condition: ★★★★☆ (4.5: Very good condition)
It is in very beautiful dead stock condition. It is in excellent condition with the original color and luster intact. This is a piece from the backstamp that was made just before Bertha discontinued production. The glaze on the surface of the pieces from that time was strengthened, making them more resistant to abrasion and producing an excellent green color. The condition is recommended by the owner. The Berså that arrived this time is in the best condition ever. This is a masterpiece that brings together the know-how of the vintage era.

This is a classic Bersa plate 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 is a reprint version of Versa Plate, 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. Another characteristic of vintage is that the edges of the plate are raised up. The reprint version has a bowl-like shape that gradually increases in height from the center to the edge. This is also very convenient to use as a cake plate or serving plate. The color and luster remain the same as when they were manufactured, making it a very beautiful vintage item.

Berså series


Berså is a classic series from Gustavsberg, a long-established Swedish tableware manufacturer. Bertha was designed in 1961 by Swedish mid-century master Stig Lindberg.

Berså (Bersa, Besjö, Bersjö) means "arbor", although it is not often used in Swedish these days. It is a resting place such as a garden or park where you can take a breather.

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. Versa's lush greenery has a mysterious charm that brings fresh green color and a refreshing breeze to the dining table at any time, and it is a design that is truly representative of Scandinavian tableware.

There is also a reprint version of Bertha, but the reprint version has a lighter green color and more uniform leaf shape than the vintage version. The characteristics of vintage are the vividness of the green color and the subtle fluctuations in each leaf. In addition, the back stamp of the vintage Bertha has a beautiful and unique design. The backstamp on the reprint is the company's anchor symbol, and the original Bertha backstamp is gone.

Stig Lindberg

Stig Lindberg

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.
