Arthur Percy (1886-1976) was one of Sweden’s leading ceramic artists in the 20th century. He worked as painter and designer for the Gefle porcelain factory from 1923-59, for Elsa Gullberg's textile firm from 1936-51, and for Gullaskrufs Glasbruk from 1951-59.
Percy was a prominent designer of tableware series like Hyacint, Rubin, and Vinranka. His work can been seen in the Swedish National Museum of Art and Design.
Gefle Porslinsfabrik was a Swedish porcelain factory, created in 1910 in Gävle in Gästrikland. It was originally established under the name of Gefle Porslinsbruk, but was renamed Gefle Porcelain Factory in 1913 when the factory became a limited company.
At the beginning Gefle produced kitchenware and from 1913 a dinnerware was also created. Gefle porcelain is recognizable on the brand with its three chimneys logo. Gefle was purchased by Upsala-Ekeby in 1936 and closed in 1979.
