Products from our catalogues:

Beloved gadgets

Because I want one1950

Bird feeder

An invention by Clas Ohlson himself. The suction cup allowed the bird feeder, which was made from steel wires, to be stuck to glass windows. Perfect for bird watchers. (From the catalogue 1950.)

Get your house in order2000

Leather wallet

The word “wallet” was, once upon a time, a general word for carrying articles. Today’s notion of it as a “flat, foldable case for carrying currency and too many receipts” didn’t start until the mid-1800s.(From the catalogue 2009.)

Connecting to each other2000

Mobile phones

Mobile phones came into usage in Sweden in the early 1980s but by 1987, only two percent of the population had their own phone because they were expensive. Thirteen years later that number had risen to 71 percent and, by 2004, 100 percent had a mobile phone (and many had one for work and one for private use). (From the catalogue 2008.)
