Earring Snake Art nr. 104933

1,200 SEK (inkl. moms)

According to mythology, a snake biting itself in the tail symbolises eternity. The snake motif was designed already in the 1920s but it was in December 1943 that Estrid Ericson began to show original jewellery in pewter. Some of the pieces were modelled after the Swedish History Museum’s Bronze Age jewellery collections, but most of them were her own creations that evolved in the workshop together with Thure Carlsson, Svenskt Tenn’s talented embosser.

  • Designer

    Estrid Ericson began her career as a drawing teacher and pewter artist. But what really set her apart during her 56 years as managing director for Svenskt Tenn were her abilities as a producer and scenographer. Ericson never had an aesthetic programme mapped out, but she had an imaginative person’s perceptiveness for the many faces of beauty. Read more

  • Care instructions

    Pewter is a soft material that requires careful treatment. We recommend using cotton gloves when handling pewter. Objects that are not being used can be stored in a plastic or felt bag to avoid scratching.

    It is generally recommended to avoid using polish on pewter, since it can cause scratches. To remove fingerprints and other stains, rinse the pewter in warm water with a small amount of dish detergent. Dry with a soft cloth. For more advanced cleaning of pewter objects we recommend a professional restorer, for example, KA Johnsson in Stockholm.
