More information

The ceramist, sculptor, and designer Tyra Lundgren was a close friend of Estrid Erikson since their study days at Tekniska skolan. She was engaged in the aesthetic matters of the shop and contributed constructive feedback. On one occasion around 1928, she sent a sketch to Estrid: "I found a drawing that you might be able to use for a bowl..." Tyra Lundgren's suggestion became a magnificent bowl with model number 630, which came to be counted among Svenskt Tenn's luxury items. With its elaborate decoration, it became one of the most expensive pieces in the range.
