Second hand stuff with a story attached to it is sometimes the best second hand.
These two are unexpected presents from my Grandmother who looked through her cupboards on my last visit. The first, a red plastic pitcher, I got when I commented on its beauty. I guess both Gran and me saw the Design 365 on TV wich highlights a Swedish Design each day of the year (their web is great!) because 2005 is the Design Year. I don’t know if this pitcher is a real Fontana (see January at Design 365), or a copy, but I love how the red colour showes the water inside.
The other gift was a chrystal bowl for sallad or fruit that my Grandmother’s mother Elsa bought around 1920! Maybe something to bring to Antikrundan?
Buy the way swedes: have you noticed that SVT publish some programs online? Like the whole Kulturnyheterna (with special section of book reviews)! Wow, that is good service. And you don’t need to pay TV license to look (and for those of you living abroad)!
