It is a tea cup of the Bersa series designed in 1961 by Stig Lindberg, a master of modern design representing Sweden. There are many teacups, but most of them were used as daily necessities, and paint loss and stains on the hills are often seen. While there are many scrapes and stains from normal use, this Versa tea cup is in the beautiful category.

Berså tea cups are also reprinted, but there are differences in the color of the leaves compared to the original. The biggest difference is the form. The reprint is made of thin bone china and has a design that follows the mouth, while the vintage has a rounded mouth and overall shape.

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. Berså (Bersa, Bell show) means gazebo, and the design is designed to make you feel the cool fika in the afternoon spent in a corner of the garden.

About Stig Lindberg

Stig Lindberg (1916-1982)

Lindberg was born in Umeå, a central city in northern Sweden, and studied painting at the Konstfack art school in Stockholm. In 1937, he joined Gustavsberg and studied under his teacher, Wilhelm Koge, and 12 years later, in 1949, he succeeded Koge as the company's art director. Since then, Lindberg has produced numerous works as a flag bearer of Swedish modernism in the middle of the 20th century. The Gustavsberg workshop in the era when Lindberg was active has reached its heyday, and even now the works of that time are recognized as works of the golden age called "mid-century" and have high value. Lindberg's studio was called G-Studion, and young painters showed their skills. Lindberg retired in 1980 and opened a workshop in Italy where he retired, but died there two years later.
