Royal Copenhagen Aluminia Oranjga//Tureby Design

Aluminia Royal Copenhagen, Tureby or Oranja Design

Oranja or Tureby, designed for Aluminia/Royal Copenhagen by Nils Thorsson in 1934. (It is also known as pattern 254).

The base colour is probably best described as an off-white with greyish tones, and it has an exquisitely detailed basket weave design around the rims in an orange-red colour, finished off with gold. Such a great colour combination.

Below are some of the pieces in this design I have had.  The candlesticks are the standout – very festive, with their alternating orange white and gold stripes.

All the shapes have a lovely soft and rounded form to them – particularly noticeable with the cups.
