Anna Petrus Furniture

Anna Petrus was a Swedish sculptor, graphic artist, designer and dancer, born in 1886, in Uppsala, Sweden. She is remembered, in particular, for the pewter and cast iron works with the lion motif, which she designed in the mid-1920s for Svenskt Tenn, some of which are still produced today. Anna also contributed to the design of the Swedish pavilion for the “1925 Paris Exhibition”.

Pair of stunning pewter candlesticks by Anna Petrus, designed in the period 1925-1927. The candleholders sit on the heads of Petrus’ signature lions with expressive faces and flutes in their paws. The wide bases are decorated with a classic meander pattern. Anna Petrus was a Swedish sculptor, industrial designer and dancer with a unique, powerful artistic expression, renowned for her designs for Svenskt Tenn. She came from a wealthy family in Uppsala and got her education at Chelsea School of Art in London, Althins målarskola and Kungliga Konsthögskolan (Royal Institute of Art) in Stockholm. Following her studies she worked with materials such as granite, marble and iron, inspired by by Greek mythology in her creations. She developed a distinct style, where women from the myths were rendered strong and assertive rather than passive and weak. She was part of a group of female artists, among them Siri Derkert, who fought for space in the conservative and male dominated art world. She debuted with a set of linoleum prints at the Baltic Exhibition in Malmö in 1914 and again in Stockholm in 1916 with sculptures with her characteristic expression. In 1920 a fire in her studio destroyed most of her works, and became a turning point in her artistic career. Recuperating from the blow, she travelled to Italy and North Africa, looking for new inspiration. When she returned to Stockholm, she started working with pewter, a material that at the time was looked upon as an old-fashioned and base material. She made trays and table tops inspired by North African smoking tables, and soon started collaborating with the influential architect Uno Åhrén around the designs. Anna Petrus was one of the earliest and most prominent revivers of using pewter...
