Flenstead Mobile - Scandinavian Swans

One of the earliest Flensted mobiles, created by Christian Flensted in 1956. An elegant and beautiful mobile with five white swans, symbolizing the nations of Scandinavia.

Mobiles are a traditional craft in Denmark, however in 1954 by Christian Flensted and his wife Grethe created the modern mobile. Today, their son Ole and his wife Aase continue the tradition, with ideas for new and original mobiles issuing regularly from their Department of Space Research.

Flensted Mobiles are created so that the elements are in constant motion while the entire mobile maintains a harmonic balance. Each mobile is carefully assembled, and balanced by skillful hands in Denmark and packed so that they are ready to hang.
