Set of 6 plates (2 different designs), 6 cups (man on one side, woman on the other), 6 saucers, sugar basin and milk jug. These are in great, fresh condition, with no cracks or chips.
A whimsical design in blue, green and purple designed by Turi Gramstad Oliver. It is one of the most recognisable and iconic Scandinavian patterns of the mid-20th Century. It was produced from 1962. It was re-released in 1972. This set must be from the earlier series because the backstamp dates from 1950. They were made using hand-painted screenprinting.
Turi Gramstad Oliver (b1938 -) started with Figgjo in 1960 and worked with them for over 20 years producing some of their most loved designs. She was trained as a ceramist by Norwegian National Academy of Craft and Art Industry in Oslo 1956-1958, while working in the pottery studio of Kari Nyquist in Bergen until 1960.
