Welcome to a new feature here at The Recycleista-Adventures in Thrifting! I'm hoping to hit every Monday, so I'll do my best. I love all things vintage, but lately I've been learning and focusing on things more mid-century especially things Danish Modern and Scandinavian. I'm looking at them with new appreciation. My Mid Century Eye is being honed to spot these items while I'm thrifting. Things I may have overlooked before. And I need to learn. Much of my research lately has been about companies like Dansk, Orrefors, Figgjo Flint, Rorstrand...because these are the brands I've started finding. So I figured you can learn along with me!
Figgjo Flint is a Norwegian company that started in 1941 and is still producing. I love their quirky, folk artsy themes from the 1950s and 1960s.
Lotte is another popular pattern. I think I saw an unmarked salt and pepper set in this pattern and didn't recognize it at the time. I may have to go back and see if they are still there. Several of the mid-century folksy pieces have people on them and stylized decorations. The company produced tableware, bowls, cups and dishes.
The above plaque is the same pattern as my plate I found. (see top). This plaque is being sold by A LA MODERN. If you want to learn more about mid century modern, check out their website and blog!! Fun stuff!! I always love to see what they've found!
So that's today's Mid Century Monday! Stay tuned next week when we'll take a look at...Swedish Art Glass...Orrefors!
