Royal porcelain from Rörstrand at Rosersberg Palace

A unique collection of porcelain and ceramics from the Rörstrand Museum and the Royal Collections covering a period of almost 300 years is on display at Rosersberg Palace. The exhibition ‘Royal porcelain from Rörstrand’ can be seen from May 6 until September 30. 

 During Rörstrand’s 290 year history, the Swedish Royal Court has had many links to porcelain and ceramics. Jean-Eric Rehn, one of the architects behind the Royal Palace of Stockholm, was commissioned to design Rörstrand’s first patterns.

Later on, King Oskar II was a keen collector of 18th century faïence, and Prince Eugen placed orders from Rörstrand for his home at Waldemarsudde. King Gustav VI Adolf took an interest in Carl-Harry Stålhane’s stoneware pieces produced at Rörstrand, and in recent years Prince Carl Philip helped to produce the Swedish Red List series.

The breadth of styles, ages and materials makes the exhibition a must for anyone with an interest in design and history.
