  • Designer

    Björn Trägårdh was a Swedish furniture designer, artist, illustrator and graphic artist who from 1928-1936 was a designer for Svenskt Tenn. During that period he created everything from pewter items and design products to lamps and furniture. Trägårdh worked primarily with a muted colour palette of black, white and grey elements.

  • 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.
