PROVENANCE

From the collection of Herbert Küttim.

Herbert Küttim was an entrepeneur working in many different fields. It was during a trip to London in the 1950´s that his passion for porcelain began. During the following decades he travelled many times to London, filled his blue Chevrolet with antique porcelain, which he brought back to Sweden. Some was kept in his own collection, other pieces were sold on. His sons - who often accompanied him on his journeys to England - and his grandchildren inherited this collection.
