A vintage teacup made half a century ago by the famous Swedish kiln Gustavsberg. 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. For the Emma series, Lindberg determined the basic form of the plate, and each designer belonging to Gustavsberg was in charge of the decoration.

Using a method in which plain cups are likened to canvases and the decorations are drawn freely, even cups of the same form show the individuality of the artist responsible for the decorations depending on the series.

The Emma series was decorated by Paul Hoff. Paul Hoff is known for his work Japan, which features ceramic seal statues, plates depicting realistic animals, and the Japanese flag. Her style is to use a single color rather than gorgeous decorations, and in this work Emma also draws apple blossoms in a calm color scheme.

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.
