We found this little Viking yesterday. He was designed by Elsi Bourelius, and made by Jie Gantofta of Sweden.

Iittala Romantica

We stumbled on this Iittala pattern on etsy and love them! They were designed in 1963 by Tapio Wirkkala and manufactured from 1963-1972. We have two sizes now - this one is about 4 inches across and holds about 5 ounces; we also have smaller ones that hold about 3 ounces. This might be one of my favorite Iittala designs!

More Space

With an expanding collection comes the need for more space. We finally finished installing a shelf above the windows in our kitchen eating area, and hung the rest of the scando goat fabric as a valance. In addition to the Figgjo Saga pieces here, there is an old Stavangerflint pitcher with some peacock-like birds. Outside the photo are our Dansk teak ice buckets and some coffee sets from Figgjo, Dansk and Stavangerflint.
