With its pipes sticking out, flowers are placed in beautiful proportion to each other, which was certainly the early functionalist designer Nils Fougstedt’s intention when he designed this vase in pewter. It feels modern even though it was designed back in 1931.

    Pewter is a silvery-white metallic element that is extracted primarily from the mineral tinstone or cassiterite. It is one of the few metals that have been in use since prehistoric times.

  • 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.
