This is a rare tea cup and saucer set from the "Silvia" series designed by Rorstrand, Sweden's leading tableware manufacturer, to commemorate its 250th anniversary. It has a large capacity and is wide in shape. Sylvia also has smaller coffee cups, but this one is a larger teacup size.

The product's form design was created by Marianne Westman, known for the Monami series, and the violet flower decoration was created by the company's designer, Silvia Leuchovius.

Released in 1976, it was the year of the wedding of King Carl Gustav XVI of Sweden and Queen Sylvia Zommerad. Although there were objections to the marriage of Queen Silvia, who was a civilian from a foreign country, Sweden's leading artists such as ABBA came out in support of her. ABBA's hit song 'Dancing Queen' was first performed on the eve of the wedding, and the name 'Queen' is said to be a tribute to Queen Silvia. Rorstrand's 250th anniversary model, named Silvia, is also meant to welcome a new queen.

Queen Silvia continued her philanthropic work in the fields of elderly care and child welfare, and is now widely respected by the Swedish people.

The back stamp is engraved with the words "250 ar Jubileumsservis", which means "250th Anniversary Tableware" in Swedish. A more decorative back stamp is designed compared to the Rolstrand product, which conveys the special commitment to the anniversary model.

The Sylvia series was developed as a series of tableware including tea cups, coffee cups, plates, pitchers, creamers, and bowls. Made of hard, thin bone china with a transparent glaze, beautiful patterns, and sophisticated form, it boasts particularly high quality as a rolled strand product from the 1970s.

It is also noteworthy that the Sylvia series does not have the pillar marks that are common in Scandinavian vintage tableware, indicating that the kiln firing environment has been completely redesigned for the Sylvia series. This is a masterpiece with a high degree of perfection and beauty among Scandinavian vintage tableware.
