Here's this week's star buy. I've wanted one for ages  :P

A big Valencia charger 14".

Where I'm going to display it I don't know.

Shoving my oar in here, because I'm sort of interested in these sorts of designs - I've been familiar with what I call "men plates" since the early 70s. Mother had, now I have, a set of Norwegian plates with pictures of girls and boys and fruit, along the lines of Robbo's atavar (Hiya Robbo :hug: - there's no escaping me, is there?).

They have purply-blue marks on the back.
 turi-design: Corsica made in (FF) norway handpainted silkscreen.
there's leafy bits, also a backstamp in a different shade of turquoisey blue FF logo thing, with a ripple inbetween the Fs.

I have other "men" plates too - but I'll have to go dig them out. Two other kinds, I think.

Hi Sue, hellooooo!

 :hug:


Your plates are Figgjo Flint. Corsica is the name of the design. My avatar is Figgjo Flint too, from a cruet set. I think the design is "Saga".

Edit: Here's one:

Them's the ones! I've got about 12 wee plates and 2 big chargers. They're going on my kitchen walls. Not wire hangers - I've got some gluey things.

I had real trouble finding the right shades of red and green paint for the walls to go with them!

Not worth a fortune, then ::). Don't care, I like them!

Hi, it is'nt part of the Ruska range, but is using the same glaze....It might be part of the 'Kaarna' range that was also designed by Ulla Procope and produced with a variety of glazes including this one.
