Gustavsberg Red and Blue Aster Fika or Lunch Plates
One of Sweden's most important post-war designer and illustrators, Stig Lindberg, (1916-1982), created whimsical ceramics and graceful tableware during a long career with the porcelain company Gustavsberg.
Here the beloved Rod Aster and Bla Aster print is relaunched in the "fika" which in Swedish means to have a little snack or take a coffee is what Gustavsberg had in mind when they created the smaller plate. Pair either plate with the Gustavsberg Bla or Rod Aster coffee cup sets 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.
