A trio of Emma series coffee cups, saucers and cake plates made about half a century ago by the famous Swedish kiln Gustavsberg. This work is decorated in a single color without using extravagant decorations, and apple blossoms are drawn in a calm color scheme. The back is stamped with the VDN quality mark, indicating that it was manufactured in Sweden up to 1973.

Gustavsberg designs tableware with two elements: form and pattern. The form design that determines the shape of the tableware is handled by Stig Lindberg, a mid-century flag-bearer who represents Sweden in the 20th century.

Lindberg defines the basic forms of tableware. Then, young designers freely drew decorations on plain tableware, and many tableware with different designs of the same form were designed. Even with plates of the same form, the individuality of the artist responsible for the decoration appears depending on the series. The decoration of this work is It's done by Paul Hoff .

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.
