We mentioned in yesterday’s post that, due to unforeseen circumstances, we’d not listed as many items as usual on our H is for Home website recently. It takes much more time to put things online than straight into our bricks & mortar shop space – and time has been in short supply of late.
However, the fightback has started! Here’s a selection of vintage goodies that we’ve photographed and listed today.
We really do like to spread pieces between physical and internet worlds – and with a bit more time available now hopefully, there should be much more to follow in the coming days and weeks!
Figgjo Flint is a Norwegian pottery company still producing today.
Our favourites of theirs are the folk art and landscape-inspired designs of the 1950s & 60s – ranges such as Lotte, Daisy, Sicilia and Market.
Tor Viking pattern egg cup and plate border detail
They incorporated mythical creatures, whimsical figures and stylised flowers.
Sicilia pattern plates
The motifs were used to decorate tableware, kitchen equipment and decorative objects such as bowls and wall plaques.

Various mergers have taken place under the Figgjo umbrella, significant amongst these was with Stavangerflint in 1968.
