It is a coffee cup produced by Gustavsberg, a Swedish pottery maker. There are two sizes in this work, coffee cup and tea cup , but this is a small size coffee cup. Tea cups are widely distributed, but coffee cup sizes are relatively rare.

The series name Blohüssar means "blue cavalry". The uniforms of Swedish cavalrymen have traditionally been the same blue as the national flag, and even today the cavalry around the Royal Palace in Stockholm, the capital, wears blue uniforms to protect them. Blohüssar incorporates the blue armor worn by the cavalry into the design as a design.

Gustavsberg's tableware is basically decorated with a method called "transcription", in which paper on which the design is drawn is pasted, but this is a relatively rare hand-painted decoration for the company. The characteristic of the Blöhüssar series is that each piece has a rather uneven blue color.

This work was manufactured for only three years from 1968. There seems to be a point that it was difficult to make the same one as a standard product because of the large individual differences in the blue color in the background.

Stig Lindberg

Stig Lindberg (1916-1982)

Born in Umeå, the central city of northern Sweden. Hajime Stockholm Art University Konstfack ( Konstfack) to learn painting. In 1937, he joined the Gustavsberg company, where he gradually distinguished himself under the tutelage of his teacher, Wilhelm Koge. Twelve years later, in 1949, he succeeded Koge as an art director in charge of the design of the company.

Since then, Lindberg has released numerous works as a standard-bearer of Swedish modernism in the middle of the 20th century. The Gustavsberg workshop reached its peak in the era when Lindberg was active, and the works of that time are recognized as the work of the golden age called "mid-century" and have high value. Lindberg's workshop is called G-Studion (G Studio), and young designers are showing great skill, producing prominent artists such as Lisa Larson.
