PERIOD SET OF SIX SCANDINAVIAN AFTERNOON TEA TRIOS FROM THE SWEDISH STUDIO OF RÖRSTRAND

FEATURING A BEAUTIFULLY DELICATE REPEATING LEAF PATTERN IN SUBTLE OLIVE TONE HIGHLIGHTED WITH BLACK PINSTRIPING AGAINST A CRISP WHITE BACKGROUND

A DESIGN VERY SIMILAR TO STIG LINBERGS “BERSA” RANGE FOR ANOTHER SWEDISH STUDIO “GUSTAVSBERG”

INCIDENTALLY RÖRSTRAND’S “EDEN” RANGE DESIGNED BY THE GERMAN ARTIST SIGRID RICHTE HAS A VERY SIMILAR LEAF PATTERN TO THIS “ALBA” SET WITH RITCHTE JUST HAPPENING TO ALSO HAVE WORKED AS A FAIENCE PAINTER AT GUSTAVSBERG BEFORE MOVING TO RÖRSTRAND IN THE MID-1950’S
