What once was a daring deviation from iittala's simple lines has become one of the most beloved dinnerware designs, and this detailed dinner plate is the latest addition to the sought-after series. Designed by Klaus Haapaniemi, the Taika (Magic) pattern tells the story of an enchanted forest full of fanciful creatures. An ornate owl takes center stage against the elegant red porcelain of this dishwasher, freezer, microwave and oven-safe plate. Mix and match this piece with iittala Teema; the range of colors in the design leaves plenty of room to play with your place setting. Whatever combinations you create, the iittala Taika Red Dinner Plate will garner admiration at the table.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a Finn or fan of Finnish design that doesn’t recognize the iittala logo, designed by Timo Sarpaneva in 1956 and inspired by his “i-line” range. The logo serves as a symbol of quality craftsmanship, timeless design, and thoughtful functionality. Many collectors ... More iittala

Beauty and Style of Iittala

Iittala's Taika red dinner plates (10.5") is as cheerfully festive as one would hope. The perfect Christmas dinner plates for our table setting. Iittala's full Taika collection is whimsical and so beautifully done. I also have this plate in the 11 inch blue version. Like a colorful folk-story in fine porcelain. FinnStyle's service was remarkable from start-to-finish with safe, secure and fast shipping in plenty of time for Christmas.

I've been pondering this set for a couple of years and finally decided to purchase them when they went on sale. The design is so lovely and I'll be combining the red with the other colors for year round use.
Thank you Finnatyle for being such a resource for Finnish merchandise

Very excited to have added Red to my table setting pieces
Consdisappointed it is a smaller sized dinner plate then the Blue and White prints I have previously gotten. We have Grandchildren and these will be their dinner plates for special occasions.

I'd been searching for these hard to find red iittala plates and was delighted to locate them at such a value! They are beautiful and just what I wanted. Finn ordering was super easy and I had plates with in 5 days. Totally satisfied and will definitely purchase from them again!

The red Taika dishes make the most festive and joyful holiday table! Whimsical and magical.
My collection grows
March 13, 2016
Now I have red, white, and blue in most of the individual items (mug, bowl, plate, etc). Still haven't bought a big server.
ProsFun to collect one or two pieces at a time.
Delightful design, solid plates
February 16, 2016
Very pretty plates, colors were just as vibrant as expected when they arrived. Plates are solid and seem like they will indeed survive many years in regular rotation (yes, including trips through the dishwasher). Shipping from FinnStyle was reasonable, timely, and plates were very well packaged to avoid damage.
Prossolid plates, vibrant colors, decent shipping

iittala Taika Red Dinner Plate
December 11, 2015
When I first saw the photo of this plate, I was taken by the beautiful vivid colors and the striking owl on the plate. Although I stopped cooking years ago, I decided that the dishes would be wonderful to have for my casual style of entertaining. I intend to use them all year round, although I know they are considered a seasonal product.
ProsBeautiful high quality plates.

love the new size
December 12, 2014
I love the Taika and this new size is great - the large dinner plate is at times a bit too large. Plus I love Taika owls so it is wonderful to have another piece with the owl on it.
So happy these are finally being offered
December 2, 2014
We first purchased iittala Taika products a few years ago and were dismayed that not all pieces came in red. Checked recently since I remembered that red is a "seasonal" color and Christmas is coming, and woohoo! Red dinner plates! They are a different size than the other plates we had, but we like this size (a bit smaller) better, so we decided to get the other colors in this size.
Design is charming and colors are vibrant. These are beautiful, sturdy plates. Very happy with them.
