This week we’re featuring yet another lovely piece of vintage Scandinavian pottery. This is a Fajance plaque designed by Beth Breyen for Royal Copenhagen in the 1960s. It’s sometimes referred to as a ‘Crazy Bird’ and is from the Tenera range. We’ve only ever had a spoon rest with this design but you can also find it on salt pots, trivets and strangely, coffee filter holders.
Fajance is an earthenware pottery that derives its name from Faenza in Italy, where it was first manufactured in the 16th century.
The plaque is in perfect condition and is being sold by & in support of Age UK Cheshire East*
