Scandinavia

For as long as I can remember I have been interested in in old things and things that carry a history. I still remember when I, as a young child, saved some old bookFor as long as I can remember I have been interested in in old things and things that carry a history. I still remember when I, as a young child, saved some old books from being thrown away after my grandparents had died and the house was being sold. I kept the books hidden and safe, as my secret treasure, for meny years. Today I´m glad I was so determined, the oldest book is from 1748. At the age of 7 I already had a strong feeling that old things needs to be treated with respect. I guess it all started there, the interest in finding and caring for old or special things. The collector soul in me was born. Recently I found a growing interest in silver jewelry. I tought I was drawn to simple elegant designs but I´m learning more about my taste everyday. I´m humble about this whole thing as I find it hard to call myself a collector, I just recently realized I have this condition. I don´t know a lot, but I do know what I like and I also like research. I´m looking forward to share and to read about other peoples pieces and collections. (Read more)

  35. Does it say 'made in yugoslavia'?
  36. In scandinavia tin (pewter) was very 'in' amongst artists in the 60's and 70's, so we have quite a lot of nice pewter. But this piece is more of an oldfashioned style and not modernist. Interesting.
  37. I've looked online. Found a photo of the same design and they called it 'wildflower', don't know if that's the name of the design or not. It looks quite a lot like a design by him called 'anemone'.
  38. Did they live here?! The plate is very beautiful!
  39. Wonderful they are!
  40. Wonderful! Probably good you can't drink out of it as pewter isn't that healthy to eat and drink from, unless there is another material on the inside. I would use it as a really cool keepsake for my k...
