More about crème cups and the Gripsholm pattern

Although these kind of sets are often known as chocolate or custard cups, the certificate explains that the first crème cups in Sweden were made in 1766 at Marieburg for jelly & nougat crème - Rorstrand has produced this style of crème cup with lid & dish since 1867

The decor is from the Rorstrand Gripsholm service, which was manufactured in Stockholm from 1914-1925.  Rorstrand’s Gripsholm design is inspired by the magnificent dinner service gifted to King Gustav III at Gripsholm Castle by the Swedish East India Company in 1776. The Swedish East India ship Terra Nova reached port in Gothenburg on 9 July 1776 after a long journey to China and back. In honour to the King, she carried a 700-piece porcelain service made in Canton as a precious gift. The decorative form and motif with the national coat of arms was a distinct Gustavian style
