Description

Ostindia, voted “Service of the Century” in Sweden, owes its existence to hidden treasure. After a ship returning from China sank off Gothenburg in 1746 a fragment of china from the cargo somehow ended up in a cupboard at the Rörstrand factory. Many years later in 1932 factory manager Knut Almström’s wife spotted it and uttered the famous words, “Knut, I think it might be worth making something out of this…”. And so a shard of Chinese porcelain became the model for an iconic Rörstrand design.

Anna Lerinder is one of Sweden’s foremost porcelain designers and maybe the one that Rörstrand consults most frequently. Her Ostindia Floris, Swedish Red List and Mademoiselle Oiseau have all been widely praised for their clean lines and restrained elegance, the hallmarks of Anna Lerinder’s language of design. In 2012 Anna Lerinder was awarded the ELLE Interiör Design Prize for her work.
