Royal Selangor Australia Trade Catalogue



That any pewter of the American colonies has survived is somewhat of a miracle. With no domestic raw material, and forced to send to England for tin at exorbitant cost and unreliable delivery, 17th and 18th century pewterers were restricted to melting worn pieces to cast as new. Despite these trials, fine examples of their craft showcase a quintessential American style resonant to this day. In Liberty, the influence of European forms is undeniable, but it is the unpretentiousness and ease of style that speaks of the character of the New World.




Designs by Erik Magnussen (1940-2014) are in the collection of design museums around the world, a testament to the quality of his work and the high regard with which the international design community holds him. He has designed for some of the greatest names in the industry, including Bing & Grøndahl, Fritz Hansen, Paustian and Royal Copenhagen. His jug for Stelton, designed in 1977, remains a constant in the stable of cult objects requisite in any contemporary interior. The Copenhagen native is the recipient of numerous awards, amongst them Denmark’s Lunning and Furniture Prizes, multiple ID-prizes by the Danish Society of Industrial Design, Germany’s red dot award, and the Good Design Gold Prize awarded by the Japan Industrial Design Promotion Organization.

His initial collection for Royal Selangor in 1992 marks some of his earliest forays into pewter.
