A large size teacup made by Gustavsberg, a Swedish pottery manufacturer. 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

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.
