Figgjo (Norway) 'Maja / Mexico' Handled Serving Dish | Designed by Turi Gramstad-Oliver
Figgjo was founded by Harald Lima and Sigurd Figved in 1941. In 1946, designer and ceramist Ragnar Grimsrud (1902-1988) became co-owner and general manager of Figgjo. The company took its current form in 1968 following the merger of Stavangerflint AS with Figgjo Fajanse AS.
The company is still in production today (one the last in the Nordic region) and as well as producing wonderful new pieces, classics such as Lotte, Market and Daisy continue to be popular with a new generation of collectors today.
