Hi, I just found your blog while looking for historical info on Rorstrand china. I'm sorry to hear they are now producing in China. I was seaching because I have several lovely demitasse cups that I am trying to identify. So far, I can only name Linnea. Mine all are signed "LA-g" - anyone you know? I received these as a wedding present in 1952, I would guess before your father's time. I followed links in your blog and was delighted to get back into the design world, which I left around 15 years ago. Many thanks for a great blog! Gail Hunter

Stig Lindberg har gjort så mycket snyggt och egentligen gillar jag inte blått men för detta tyg gör jag absolut ett undantag.Hur är det att leva i usa? Jag har mycket telefonkontakt med människor i Bostonområdet och ibland vill jag prova på att bo i usa.Var vet jag inte men kanske på nån varmare plats än Massachusetts :-).Min man vill inte flytta så det kanske förblir en dröm ,men vem vet....??Du har så fin blogg.Ha det bra

Hi Gail Hunter,
I am so glad that you enjoyed and found the information on Rorstrand helpful. I don't recognize the signature on the bottom of your cups, but will forward your message to my dad. Also, if you'd like, email me a photo of your cups and I can forward that to my dad as well.

Wow, that's such a pretty Stig Lindberg-fabric. I keep being amazed about how many lovely things he has designed in just one lifetime...
