Pics 27.3.2009

Prince Carl Philip of Sweden has designed the CPB 2091 line of silver
cutlery for Swedish company Mema/GAB. The Prince studied design
at the Rhode Island School of Design and the Forsberg School in
Sweden. He is now walking in the footsteps of his late great uncle
Sigvard Bernadotte, who was an internationally renowned designer.
Stockholm, Sweden, March 27, 2009

Do you -or anybody else- know if the profit they make by selling it as the work of the prince (which it is of course) will go to charity or to the owners of the company?

Nothing goes to charity, yes well it is a bit surprising when a spoon costs 100 Euros...

Blimey, 100 euros for 1 spoon, not even the entire set? I suppose they are of real silver?

Well, if that dinner includes the prince I suppose that is a reasonable amount of money, but for the set of tablewear a bit above my budget sadly .

Anyway, it is nice to see that the prince is using his education as a graphic designer.

Svenskdamtidning has an article(in Swedish) with a great photograph of Prince Carl-Philip at yesterday's press conference.

Perhaps the Local or Hello might have an article in regards to the press conference.

According to one of the press information packs on the Mema/GAB website, it costs 999 Swedish kroner for a set of 5 cutlery pieces (knife, fork, spoon, dessert spoon and coffee spoon). So roughly 95 Euros...not as bad as 100 Euro for one piece!

For silver the price is reasonable.
However...if he would go deeper into this and would make CPB a brand, I´d expect him to make a decision. Accepting an apanage and earning money on his prince title is a no-go in my book...and not just in mine...

Well, at least we know what he'll be getting his sister as a wedding present! ;-)

It's a nice-looking design. If it's 95 euros per placesetting, that's a very good price for silver. I wonder if it will be available in the United States.

indeed it does. He's so attractive and the fact that he can design something we use on a daily basis makes him infinitely more appealing.

Wouldn't it be lovely if the silver that Carl Philip designed were to be used at Victoria and Daniel's wedding?


I think that would be amazing.

i think it's admirable of him to be defined not only as a prince but as someone who have other aspects to his personality....and if he comes with the cutlery set..then i'll pay that 100 euros..hehehe
