Marieberg och 1700-talets kakelugnar

Scherman, Susanna LU (2007)
Abstract
The Marieberg porcelain factory, situated on the island of Kungsholmen in Stockholm, existed between 1758 and 1788. The aim of this study has been to investigate the manufacture of tiled stoves at Marieberg. The first question I wanted to answer was: how many were actually produced? The few documents from the period that have survived show that Marieberg must have had continuous production of tiled stoves for nearly twenty years. It probably started in 1767 when Johan Liljencrantz was appointed manager of the factory, when a tiled stove was made specially for him.

The Marieberg porcelain factory, situated on the island of Kungsholmen in Stockholm, existed between 1758 and 1788. The aim of this study has been to investigate the manufacture of tiled stoves at Marieberg. The first question I wanted to answer was: how many were actually produced? The few documents from the period that have survived show that Marieberg must have had continuous production of tiled stoves for nearly twenty years. It probably started in 1767 when Johan Liljencrantz was appointed manager of the factory, when a tiled stove was made specially for him.



The second question concerned what the Marieberg tiled stoves were actually like. My aim was to arrive at a complete description, to show what it is that allows us to identify a tiled stove from Marieberg, and how they differ from the tiled stoves made during the same period by the stove makers, above all in Stockholm, and by the Rörstrand porcelain factory. There are a great many details specific to Marieberg stoves. By examining the stoves known for certain to have been produced at Marieberg, I arrived at a large number of criteria that could be used as a basis for compiling an inventory. A large number of tiled stoves were thus found which can be attributed to Marieberg. About ninety tiled stoves and parts of stoves are considered in the dissertation, but there were probably even more that have been discarded and lost. In compiling the inventory I found a number of tiled stoves of similar material and with very similar design, which I have ascribed to Rörstrand. Tiled stoves from Marieberg are made from a light, yellowish ware, and there are also a great many tiled stoves from Rörstrand which are made of similar clay. To test the assumption that they were made by two different factories, a technical analysis was performed at the Laboratory of Ceramic Research in Lund. (Less)
