Bjorn to Ride

Bjorn Wiinblad candelabra

Spectacularly whimsical 20" tall Bjorn Wiinblad ceramic horseman candelabra, new in our shop.
Also in our shop, which, thanks to Remodelista's mention has been recently depleted, are some Patrick Nagel prints, Alessio Tasca bookends, Gunnar Cyren cooking pots, a Gerald Thurston desk lamp, a Jack Russell needlepoint, a brass souvenir of Kuwait Towers, two more oil tankers, a Jens Quistgaard tray, a brass Beverly Hills key tray, and a lucite wine pourer,  among other things.

I need to send you some photos of the inn by our summerhouse here in DK. The dining room is covered in hand-painted Wiinblad tile. It is off the hook.

It will most likely be the first weekend in June by the time we get up there, but I will do it!

Hi, I have an Elaine Magnin needlepoint canvas that is clearly a Bjorn Wiinblad design (1001 nights). Elaine Magnin was the premier needlepoint store in San Francisco for almost 40 years. I bought the needlepoint at a garage sale in the swanky Sea Cliff neighborhood of San Francisco years ago. I seem to vaguely recall the lady holding the sale said that Bjorn Wiinblad had spent some time in San Francisco designing sets for the Opera? So I was trying to verify this and came across your mention of the Wiinblad Gumps display from the 1970's. Do you know whether Bjorn Wiinblad ever spent time in San Francisco? And if so, was it likely that he painted this needlepoint canvas himself? Thanks for any assistance!
