  • Design

    Svenskt Tenn designed the original Hortus Pot in brass in 1938. It was designed in glass by Josef Frank for the first time in 1942, when metal was difficult to obtain due to the war. The first colours that Estrid Ericson had made in glass were ruby red, emerald green and deep blue. Since then, these colours have been preserved in the range together with a variant in clear glass, and the latest addition is a shimmering amber colour. The deep red colour is traditionally sold during Christmas.

    Svenskt Tenn

    Eighty percent of Svenskt Tenn’s collection consists of products that are of our own design. Josef Frank alone left behind 2,000 furniture sketches and about 160 textile designs. Sometimes Svenskt Tenn produces products based on models from the archive, which contains sketches and designs from both Josef Frank and Estrid Ericson.

  • Care instructions

    Do not plant the flower directly into the Hortus pot since the water will damage the brass surface. The surface is also sensitive to objects that can scratch and mar it as well as certain polishing cloths and sponges. Candle wax and grease can be washed off with hot water and then polished with a soft cloth. Avoid using brushes, steel wool and the like.

    Keep in mind that humidity can damage table tops and other surfaces. Wipe the pot dry immediately after filling it with water, and always keep it dry to reduce the need for polishing.

  • Sustainability and manufacturing

    Material

    Brass

    We have always and will always strive to protect Swedish craftsmanship when we manufacture our products, but when there are no skilled craftspeople in Sweden, our production goes where craftsmanship is available. Therefore, some of our brass products are manufactured in India. Both of our Indian suppliers are subject to Svenskt Tenn’s code of conduct, which covers social issues such as safety and the environment. Svenskt Tenn staff visits regularly to ensure that the code of conduct is adhered to. The bulk of the copper used in our Indian suppliers’ brass is recycled.

    Sustainability in focus
