Figgjo Turi Design – Village Scene
The delightful scene on this tall vinaigrette bottle form is by Turi Gramstad Oliver, for Figgjo Norway c1970.
It seems to be quite a rare design – depicting various scenes of village life. I have seen variations of it popping up very occasionally online – but I have been unable to find a name for the design – if it has one.
It may have been a design produced for decor pieces rather than a full production dinnerware line.
The line drawing for the design would have been silkscreened onto the clay, and the colours then hand painted to fill in the design.
If you have a piece in this design, or know any more about it I would love to hear from you.
