Marianne Westman's masterpiece Rorstrand Mon Amie vintage coffee cup. Monami has a tea cup and a coffee cup, and this one is a small coffee cup size. The back is stamped with the VDN quality mark, indicating that it was manufactured between 1951 and 1973. Even now, reprints of Monami are manufactured, but they are made in Indonesia, and this is an original vintage Monami manufactured in Sweden.

The big difference between Monami's reprint and the original is in the base color. The reprint has a pure white background, but the original is off-white and has a calm tone. In addition, the blue is uniform and vivid in the reprint, but the original is hand-painted, so each piece has a different shade, and it has a deep ultramarine blue. The reprinted version is too white and too blue and is a mass-market product, but the vintage is a vessel that is rich in expression and you can feel the breath of the craftsman.

The back stamp is also unique. The reprinted version is "MON AMIE Marianne Westman Rörstrand", but the original is made in Sweden, so "SWEDEN" is always stamped on the stamp. It is a Northern European-made vessel about half a century ago, but the older the vessel, the more artistic and superior it is.

About Marianne Westman

Born in the Dalarna region in central Sweden, known for the Dalarna Horse. In 1950, at the age of 22, he joined Rorstrand as a designer, and until 1971, he created many designs. It is said that she was initially reluctant to work as a designer for a major pottery manufacturer. It seems that he really wanted to open his own pottery workshop in his hometown of Dalarna. However, her monami pattern quickly became a representative design of Swedish mid-century. Westman 's works are characterized by many bohemian designs that are conscious of plants and freehand drawings.
