Rörstrand Museum and 290 years of history

Rörstrand Museum is situated a short distance from Lidköping’s main square right in the centre of town. The museum tells the story of one of Europe’s oldest porcelain factories. The collections span almost three centuries, from 1726 to present time. Here are showpieces as well as chamber pots and popular services but also tools, sketches and a round kiln. You may recognize cups from having coffee in summery lilac bowers, get reacquainted with grandma’s best vase and marvel at the crisp white and blue 18th century faience. Rörstrand is a much loved cultural heritage still in use.

Of course you can purchase a keepsake from your visit and relax a while in the museum café, all in a unique environment.

When the world came to Lidköping

29/10 2016 – 30/4 2017

What is a city? One thing is for sure, that it is built by generations of people – from all sorts of places.

Our porcelain-city Lidköping grew by using the strength, expertice and experience from across Europe. In the exhibition we raise some voices from people that came to Lidköping to work at the porcelain factory ALP and later on Rörstrand.

In this exhibition we highlight sketches made by the Irish artist Jacqueline, also known as Jackie, Lynd. She came to Rörstrand in 1974, fell in love with Sweden so much that she stayed in the country. She created many successful series for Rörstrand and now we are showing the treasure of sketches that are left here since her time at the factory.

For 290 years Rörstrand porcelain factory has always been at the forefront of ceramic function and beauty. The factory with the Rörstrand brand made everything from showpieces to chamber pots and well-loved classics. Thousands of working lives and a staff of artists gave Rörstrand a position as ceramic crown jewel with a flow of products: faience, art noveau, beautiful everyday items, Swedish Grace, pop ceramics, murky services and artware.
