Gustavsberg porcelain

"Berså & Spisa Ribb" porcelain

Gustavsberg is a Swedish porcelain company that originated in 1826.[1] It broke up in the 1990s and was sold off in pieces, to the dismay of residents of the Gustavsberg area, but artisans continued producing ceramics and household porcelain in the Gustavsberg tradition. One of Gustavsberg's most famous collections is the "Nobel Porcelain" produced in 1994. One such artisan was Josef Ekberg, who, even as a young man, created many pieces for Gustavsberg.
