Svenskt Tenn’s egg warmer in the shape of a hen, comes in two different sizes and several different prints designed by Josef Frank and Estrid Ericson.
In Josef Frank’s Baranquilla print, four lovingly detailed lianas are crafted into a beautiful whole full of lush fruits, flowers and leaves. The print was designed around 1943-45 during Josef Frank’s stay in New York – a place where many of his imaginative designs, with trees of life growing freely, flowers and fruits took form.
Baranquilla was named after the Colombian port city by the Caribbean Sea, which Josef Frank and his wife Anna passed on the exile from Sweden to America in 1941, in the midst of World War II.
The placement of the pattern may vary from the one in the picture.
