This year's Christmas table at Svenskt Tenn is an innovative colour palette, where yellow, pink and blue tones ae combined with classic elements of red and green. Materials such as pewter and brass are also mixed, creating a lavishly magnificent whole.
The high candlesticks “Kulan” are placed on the table, adorned with candle rings designed by Svenskt Tenn’s founder Estrid Ericson. The small pendants are designed by Maja Sten, as part of the “Vintergatan” (Milky Way) collection. The small angel, star and sun motif are all based on the thought of a shooting star. Something to gather around to wish and dream.
Svenskt Tenn’s elegant wine glasses with golden brim are part of the exclusive series with water and whisky glasses, designed by Svenskt Tenn in the 1980s. The wine glasses were added to the collection in 2017.
Josef Frank’s Catleya print is named after an orchid that grows in the rainforests of South America. The pattern contains flower medallions and was designed in the mid-1930s.
Estrid Ericson liked the idea of decorating one item by adding another. This is also the thought behind Svenskt Tenn’s gilded candle rings, made to be adorned with small ornaments and decorations.
Maja Sten created the Fenix bird with the idea of making a bottle opener that also became a character to place on the table; a head to pet and an eye to meet.
After studying the Museum of Ethnography’s Peruvian ceramics from the late Chimu era (1150-1460), Estrid Ericson was inspired to design this schnapps flask in pewter.
