Svenskt Tenn's founder, Estrid Ericson, began laminating textiles onto trays in the 1950s. This tray is made of Birch veneer and linen specially selected from Svenskt Tenn’s product range. The fabric gives each tray a unique and vivid surface.
The Notturno print was originally called “Moonlite” with its high pepperbushes and palm trees against the backdrop of a deep blue tropical night sky. The close-up drawings of peppercorns light up almost like large citrus fruits glowing in the moonlight. The design was created by Josef Frank during 1943-1945.
