Estrid Ericson was the pewter artist who founded Svenskt Tenn. Soon after, she began a collaboration with Josef Frank that would transform the pewter shop into the iconic design institution we know today.

This elegant pewter and brass hand mirror, with a handle resembling the hilt of a dagger, was designed by Ericson and predates the Josef Frank period. The Swedish Grace design, with its Classical elegance, evokes the ancient world. The pewter has attained a beautiful patina.
