Ostindia, voted Service of the Century in Sweden, owes its existence to hidden treasure. After a ship returning from China sank off Gothenburg in 1746 a fragment of china from the cargo somehow ended up in a cupboard at the Rrstrand factory. Many years later in 1932 factory manager Knut Almstrms wife spotted it and uttered the famous words, Knut, I think it might be worth making something out of this. And so a shard of Chinese porcelain became the model for an iconic Rrstrand design.
