    The jardiniere has a thin seam in the glass that arise when it is pressed in a divisible mould during the manufacturing process. After that it is polished to achieve a smooth finish, but traces of the handicraft always remain on the final product. 

  • Design

    Josef Frank presented the Hortus pot at Liljevalchs spring exhibition in 1939. The original Hortus pot was made of brass. During the war, when metal was hard to come by, Estrid Ericson had the Gullaskruv glassworks make a version in glass. Svenskt Tenn has had the Jardiniere in the archive for many years. Today, it is manufactured at Reijmyre Glassworks in Sweden.

    Josef Frank

    Josef Frank grew up in Vienna and studied architecture at Konstgewerbeschule. In the 1920s he designed housing estates and large residential blocks built around common courtyards in a Vienna with severe housing shortages. In 1925 he started the Haus & Garten interior firm together with architect colleagues Oskar Wlach and Walther Sobotka. Svenskt Tenn hired Josef Frank in 1934 and just a few years later he and Estrid Ericson made their international breakthrough. Although he was already 50 when he left the burgeoning Nazism in Vienna for Sweden, Frank is considered one of Sweden’s most important designers. Read more
