  • Designer: Estrid Ericson/Svenskt Tenn

    Svenskt Tenn developed this design using Estrid Ericson's print.

    Estrid Ericson began her career as a drawing teacher and pewter artist. But what really set her apart during her 56 years as managing director for Svenskt Tenn were her abilities as a producer and scenographer. Ericson never had an aesthetic programme mapped out, but she had an imaginative person’s perceptiveness for the many faces of beauty.

  • Care instructions

    Do not place extremely hot pots or pans on brass trivets. Brass conducts heat and there is a risk of damaging sensitive surfaces.

    The surface of brass is sensitive to objects that can scratch and mar it as well as certain polishing cloths and sponges. Candle wax and grease can be washed off with hot water and then polished with a soft cloth. Avoid using brushes, steel wool and the like.

    Unpolished brass will become darker over time from exposure to air. This change can be beautiful. If the surface is affected by grease such as fingerprints and candle wax, or by other corroding substances, it can eventually be damaged and more difficult to polish away. This can happen especially in a humid environment.
