Gustavsberg Eva Fika Plate
Stig Lindberg was one of the most prolific designers in Scandinavia. For many Swedes, he is representative of the playful design of the 1950´s. Lindberg studied at the Swedish State School of Arts, crafts and design in Stockholm, hoping to become a painter. After graduating in 1937 he accepted an employment as a faience painter at Gustavsberg pottery under Wilhelm Kåge. Here the beloved Eva print is relaunched in the "fika" plate, 7 in (18 cm). Eva is the ""female"" pattern, while Adam was the ""male"" pattern designed by Stig Lindberg. Fika which in Swedish means to have a little snack or take a coffee is what Gustavsberg had in mind when they created this small plate. Pair it with the Gustavsberg Eva tea cup set to make a wonderful setting for yourself or guests.

About The Designer
Gustavsberg has manufactured porcelain since 1825. Although, the Gustavsberg history originates from the 1600s, when Gustav Gabrielsson Oxenstierna and his wife, Maria de la Gardie, founded a brickyard in Farsta bay. In memory of Oxenstierna, Farsta bay later came to change its name to Gustavsberg. It was not until 1825 that Gustavsberg became known for their manufacturing of porcelain.
Gustavsberg is now a leading brand in the porcelain industry. Their mission is to offer innovative solutions that make everyday life easier and more relaxing. Their commitment to high quality production and Nordic design still remains central to the company’s nearly 200 years of design history.
