I am very proud to finally have these three vintage Granada tv plates for decoration in my kitchen. They are designed by Turi Gramstad Oliver, known as Turi-design, who started to work for Figgjo in 1960 and was in charge of some of its most iconic designs.

After searching for a long time they’re finally mine. The plates are from the 60s from the time when television was launched and people tended to watch television a lot. What could be more handy than a sandwich and a cup of tea on a tv plate placed right in your lap? There are actually three cups that belong to the plates, but so far I haven’t found them.

FIGGJO AS, Norway was founded in 1941 near a local clay source and is located at Figgjo, a place near Stavanger on the west coast of Norway. In 1968 Figgjo took over STAVANGERFLINT – another Scandinavian favorite.
