- About Svenskt Tenn
Svenskt Tenn's founder, Estrid Ericson, found that all flowers are suitable for vases. The important thing is to choose grandiose vases for grandiose bouquets and light vases for delicate flowers. The range includes, among other things, five glass vases designed by Josef Frank; all in different sizes and with undulating shapes. In 1937, he created the characteristic vase no2. It is made by skilled glass blowers and fits everything from single stem flowers to abundant bouquets.
Leaves, branches or a large range of flowers with short stems fit in Vase no. 5.
Large autumn branches look beautiful in Vase 13, designed in 1957 by Josef Frank.
Soft stems, lush bouquets and flowing shapes are beautifully presented in Vase 2.
In newspaper articles during the 1950s, Estrid Ericson shows how to arrange seasonal bouquets. She presented the beauty of simple seed capsules and grass, but also how flowers could be combined to refined bunches and bouquets.
In 1957, Josef Frank designed a collection of four vases; no. 7, 5, 13 and 8 - all with completely different shapes: high, narrow, wide and low. The smallest of these vases is No. 8, only 11 centimetres high and 13 centimetres wide. This vase is beautifully suited for smaller flower arrangements; buds, tulips and short stems.
