Rörstrand (Sweden) 'Irene' Cup and Saucer | Designed by Rosemarie Benedikt
Rörstrand was founded in the castle of Rörstrand in Stockholm 1726 under the direction of Johann Wolff, a German porcelain maker. This makes Rörstrand the second oldest brand of ceramics in Europe (after Meissen, 1709).
Fast forward to the 1950s and Marianne Westman, “the Porcelain mother”, started to work in Rörstrand and created best-selling patterns such as Mon Amie, Picknick and My Garden. The 50's was Rörstrand’s most dynamic decade by far.
