Stålhane

100 years – 100 objects

Läckö Castle 13/6-30/8

In 2020, it will be 100 years since Rörstrand’s legendary Carl-Harry Stålhane was born. We celebrate the jubilee by displaying 100 items and photographs from the collection, which we are showing in our little room in the bailey.

Carl-Harry Stålhane was born on the other side of Lake Vänern, in Mariestad, and came to Rörstrand in Lidköping at only 18 years of age. He began his career as an assistant to one of the greatest artist of the time, Isaac Grünewald. After some poor artistic years in Paris, Stålhane returned to Rörstrand and began to map out his career. There followed a full thirty successful years at the factory in the service of ceramics. In the exhibition, artworks as well as tableware signed Stålhane are on display.
