The four Scandinavian countries Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden - constitute a cultural unit, even if scenically and in many other ways they carry a peculiarity of their own. A few hours flight connect their capitals, and from London and Paris three hours north-eastward flight will take you to Scandinavia. From New York the time of flight is barely about 18 hours. The organizations of applied art, residing in the capitals of the four countries -Copenhagen, Helsinki-Helsingfors, Oslo and Stockholm respectively -have cooperated intimately for many years. Following an invitation from American quarters these organizations, viz., "Landsforeningen Dansk Kunsthaandvcerk", Suomen Taideteollisuusyhdistys"-"Konstflitfdreniw-gen i Finland1', "Landsforbundet Norsk Brukskunst" and "Svenska Slojd-fbreningen1 (The national associations of Danish, Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish applied art) will hold in common a travelling exhibition of applied art, intended to visit about 25 museums in the U.S.A. and Canada, beginning in Richmond on January 15, 1954. In relation with this exhibition, which will be of exquisite contents, this "Trade Catalogue11 is published, intending to present a series of ordinary articles from manufacturing enterprises of the four countries, in order to spread knowledge of Scandinavian production, with the wish to increase commerce with the U.S.A. - The catalogue is divided into groups of articles, and in each individual group the production of the individual countries is shown separately.

It is hoped that this review will be useful for business people, indoor architects, and others in the U.S.A.
