Svenskt Tenn’s oven glove will liven up any kitchen with its beautiful prints designed by Josef Frank or Estrid Ericson. It is practical for warm pots and casserole dishes and adds a nice touch to kitchen interiors. This classic oven glove has the La Plata print.
La Plata was named after Rio de la Plata, the great river estuary outside of Buenos Aires. When Anne’s House at Millesgården was decorated by Svenskt Tenn in 1950, the sofa group was first covered with Josef Frank’s Drinks print. Carl Milles found it too dark and restless. He had envisioned white wispy clouds on blue skies for his secretary Anne Hedmark. The furniture was subsequently recovered with La Plata, designed by Josef Frank during 1943-1945.
The placement of the pattern may vary from the one in the picture.
