Figgjo Fajance AS . 60’s Ceramics from Norway.
Figgjo Fajance AS is a Norwegian porcelain manufacturing company, founded in 1941.
It was based at Figgjo in the municipality of Sandnes, Norway. The company took its current form in 1968 following the merger of Stavangerflint AS with Figgjo Fajanse AS. The company has a factory, museum and factory outlet at Figgjo. It specializes in vitrified china for the domestic and professional catering markets and was founded by entrepreneurs Harald Lima and Sigurd Figved.
Lotte was a popular pattern, several designs with people were available in a stylized manner. The company made bowls, cups and dishes, as well as wall plaques.
The company was called Figgjo Flint until the production line at Stavanger closed down in 1979, today they mass produce dishes under the name of Figgjo, but somehow I’m sure that it’s their mid century designs that people will remember the most.
