Elle Norway Plate 2
Another Elle plate - same shape number, design, designer, and decorator as the previous post, just different colors.

Elle Norway Plate
Sometimes it looks like the quality of the decorations on the front are reflected in the penmanship of the marks on the back...

We had Easter dinner at my cousin's house, and she showed me this children's dish set that my grandma gave to her as a baby. It was designed by Anne Lofthus and came in (at least) two versions, one in Norwegian and one in English. The stencil of my cousin's set has also been reversed, compared to the set that is pictured on this page (which is in Norwegian).

I don't know anything about this, other than it is from Denmark and I thought it was cute on eBay. It's also tiny - about 3.5 inches tall and very thin. The bottom is marked "Denmark" and also has an "O" with a line through it.

This looks like Inger Waage to me. It does seem to be getting harder to find non-souvenir pieces of Stavangerflint, like this.

Stavangerflint Anne Lofthus Plate
I love the Anne Lofthus designs for Stavangerflint that have a very traditional style but still with a mid-century feel. This one has a proverb (ordtak) in Norwegian about plowing, fishing, and wind (I haven't quite figured out the translation yet).
