Inspiration spring flowers by Svenskt Tenn

Vases and pots for spring flowers

Spring is finally here and at Svenskt Tenn, we welcome its arrival with flowers, twigs and bulbs in beautiful vases and pots.

Striking tulips are arranged in the Waveform pewter vase, budding branches are placed in the large, round ‘Dagg’ (Dew) glass vase, and spring bulbs such as lily of the valley, pearl hyacinth and crocus are planted in the colourful Tolvekarna (the Twelve Oaks) clay pots.

The Waveform vase is a real classic in Svenskt Tenn's range, created in 1933 by Swedish artist and designer Björn Trägårdh. He was active at Svenskt Tenn during 1928 – 1936, when he collaborated with our founder Estrid Ericson, creating everything from furniture to pewter objects.

Fill the large, round glass vase with long branches and colourful flowers. A dreamlike arrangement that awoke warm spring feelings. In 2023, it has been 14 years since Carina Seth Andersson designed the Dagg vase, and it has been a favourite design accessory in many Swedish homes for over a decade.

The vase is organic. It is made and interpreted by experienced hands. There is nothing static about it. Each vase is blown in the same mould, but depending on the glass mass and the heat, each one gets a slightly different expression.

Svenskt Tenn's founder Estrid Ericson often spent weekends in her summer house, where she picked flowers that she brought home and arranged in the store on Strandvägen 5 in Stockholm. These lovely still lifes were made in the mid-1930s.

Nils Fougstedt was a sculptor, pewter artist and craftsman. Together with Estrid Ericson, he opened a store and workshop for the manufacture and sale of pewter objects in 1924. The store later resulted in Estrid Ericson founding Svenskt Tenn and Nils Fougstedt continued to design several beautiful objects for the company. One of them is the classic 1930s vase.

One can never have too many vases, since each vase must perfectly fit the chosen flowers.
