  • Design

    The decorative, round powder box was designed in 1924 by pewter artist Nils Fougstedt. It was one of the first items in Svenskt Tenn's range, created the same year the company was founded. The dolphin that adorns the lid is probably designed after an idea by the company founder Estrid Ericson.

    Designer

    Nils Fougstedt

    Nils Fougstedt (1881-1954) was a sculptor and pewter artists. Together with Estrid Ericson, he opened a store and workshop for the manufacture and sale of pewter objects in 1924. The store later resulted in Estrid Ericson founding the company Svenskt Tenn and Nils Fougstedt continued to design several beautiful objects for the company.

  • 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.
