After finishing high school in Sweden, Baron Erik Fleming studied in Germany to be an engineer and architect. He became a silversmith by chance after dabbling in the craft. In 1921, he opened a metalsmithing business in Stockholm called Atelier Borgila. He was known for his commissions for the Swedish royal family and even fashioning a humidor for Winston Churchill’s famed cigars. Some of his pieces are collected by the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
