This museum of porcelain is a treasure of ceramics in all shapes and sizes, and has a large collection of art and household ceramics from the Gustavsbergs Porcelain factory through the whole of its 170 years old history. The exhibitions show unique art and many well-known and unknown examples of household porcelain from the start in 1827 to 1993 when this large factory closed down. Exhibited are the classics created by the known designers of the factory, for example, Wilhelm Kåge’s ”Pyro”, Stig Lindberg’s ”Berså” and Karin Björquist’s Nobel service, but also many old and more anonymous patterns such as ”Blå Blom” and ”Allmoge” which are some of the best known. Gustavsbergs Porslinsmuseum also has many temporary exhibits with different contents. The emphasis is on the many aspects of porcelain and ceramics – locally, regionally and internationally – but also about industrial history, the archipelagian environment or something equally exciting and relevant!
