A cool and curious Stavangerflint (Norway) 'Croketski' serving dish or plate...
It's a ceramic/earthenware shallow bowl with stylised ingredients around the edge, including herrings and onions. The black printed graphics have been hand painted over in dusky yellow, teal blue and burgundy - all with a bold yellow trim. I believe the design is by Inger Waage. Circa 1960s vintage.
To the reverse is a nonsense verse about the Norwegian 'Croketski'. It has been written in French and Norwegian; this dish was made for the French market. It roughly translates as "tossed in a boiling fry... put in the hearth... in a frying pan coated with a little or flour... the Croketski cheese or bacon make a festive menu of the simplest meal. Savor them with a meat or vegetable dish... with leftovers... on lean days or in the evening, on the go! Croketski keep well: always have some on hand!"
The dish or shallow bowl is 25cm tall x 21.5cm x 3.3cm deep. The inner bowl is round and about 19cm diameter. Perfect for serving an individual pasta, salad, risotto etc.
Very good condition for the age, no chips or crazing.
