It is a plate of the Linea series produced by Gustavsberg, a long-established Swedish tableware manufacturer. Linea is Carl von Linnaeus, the founder of botanical taxonomy from Sweden. He is the person who devised the binary nomenclature in which the names of plants are divided into the genus name and the species name in Latin. This plate was manufactured as a commemorative model in honor of Rinne, and is a rare plate that is rarely seen even in Sweden. The series comes in 3 different sizes, and this is the largest 24cm plate. A poem praising Rinne is written at the bottom of the back stamp on the back.

Deep in the Swedish forests in the shadows of dark firs, where no other flowers grow, you can find this bashful plant. Many poets have sung the simple beauty of this little flower with its sweet almond scent that you can sense far and wide during the white Swedish summer nights. To honor "The King of Flowers" Carl von Linne(1707-1778), the herb was given its name Linnea.

“You can find this shy flower deep in the Swedish forests, in the shadows of dark fir trees where no other flower grows. It has sung the rustic beauty of tiny almond-scented flowers, named Linnaeus in honor of Carl von Linnaeus (1707-1778), "King of Flowers". ”

What is drawn on the surface is Rinnesou named after Rinne. It celebrates the beauty of the flowers quietly blooming in the forest in the season of midsummer in Sweden, which is close to the midnight sun.

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.
