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. 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.
