Sylvia Leuchovius (1915–2003) was one of Sweden’s leading ceramic artists in the 20th century. She was part of the Nordic design tradition aiming for warm-hearted, humorous, and sometimes subtly ironic design. After her studies at ”School of Design and Crafts” in Gothenburg, Sylvia worked for the Rörstrand factory for more than 20 years. She became a prominent designer of figurines, wall plaques, and tableware – often with stylistic animal or plant motifs. Sylvia's artistry is represented at the Swedish National Museum of Art and Design.
Rörstrand has been a flagship of Swedish ceramics since the start in 1726. Over the years, the company and its designers presented numerous art pottery and tableware classics.
