Festive Taika Plates

I have Taika salad plates in white and in blue, and bought these on a whim. My husband loves them and often looks for any reason to set them on the table. Iittala quality and design in a striking color.

Pretty plates for any occasion
February 1, 2022
These plates are just the right size for a sandwich, an omelet, or a small meal. They also look great under the 20-oz. bowls if you want a more formal presentation. I bought them as Christmas china, but I'll end up using them through the winter--the bright colors and cheerful pattern are just what I need when it gets dark so early. I was originally planning to get the dinner plates to complete the set, but I may just opt for more of this size.

Not what I ordered
January 30, 2022
What you sent was not what I ordered. This was the second time you sent the wrong item, despite a note making clear which Iittala pattern I needed. Follow this up with the draconian instructions for returning, at my expense, the order you messed up, did not make for a good customer experience.

Beautiful design to elevate your setting
December 30, 2019
I admit, for portion control reasons we use these 'salad' plates as dinner plates. Guilt-free second helpings all around! The glaze is beautiful and can withstand wear and tear from utensils scratching, as well as dishwasher and microwave safe, for long lasting vibrancy. Convenient and beautiful! These plates have always garnered high praise from our guests. And we put them out to elevate special moments throughout the year, not just the holidays.

As another purist noted, these are now manufactured in Thailand. Regardless, a quality product!

Would not recommend dropping on tile floor. This proved to be too much for one of our plates.
  • Beautiful, whimsical folkloric pattern pairs well with single color settings
  • Showstopper

December 20, 2017
I've always like the Taika design and have several items in the blue, and white colors. When I needed to furnish a small apartment kitchen I chose the black and white for its dramatic impact. The colors not only look great and create a bold statement, but they also look good with whatever food you are serving. The black and white are a real compliment to salad, sandwiches, etc.

I'm delighted with these beautiful salad/dessert plates designed by a young man in Finland. My mother's ancestors were all Finns from Seinajoki and Lahti. while Finnish was her secret language to her Aiti and sister, Lilja, I eavesdropped and understood every word.

These plates will be a gift to our youngest child who turns 50 this week. I know she will treasure them as she loves being a Finn with sisu!

These are our everyday dishes. We adore them. They are beautiful and strong. They are also heavier than they look. Had to replace several recently when a shelf in our dish cabinet fell. It's wise not to stack these too high.

I use iittala Taika blue dishes in Fall and then again in January and February ( I use red Taika for Christmas season). I have salad plates, mugs and espresso cups. They are beautiful and sturdy (didn't even break when accidentally dropped on a wooden floor) and our family enjoys them so much. I am happy I found such high quality every day dishes that I don't have to babysit.

I'm so happy with all of my blue Taika dishes, and these salad plates finish the setting perfectly. I have pieces in blue, red and white, and they're just as beautiful mixed together as they are all matching. Great quality and timeless, festive style.

they packed this up great for shipping!
also I once talked to a professional designer for China and her comment was "why should you use the same pattern everyday?"
I took that to heart and have several sets in small quantities.
also I prefer salad plate size to dinner plate size.

April 17, 2013
I have both the blue and white iittala taika dinnerware. I like the contrast on my table. Creative design and well made. The pieces are hardier than they look. I have yet to have a guest not comment on how cool these pieces are. I did not need more dinnerware and had no excuse for buying the iittala taika set but could not resist the stuff. Honestly, drawn to it like a magnet. I will eventually downsize my china and dinnerware but will never part with this set. I always buy from retailers that have it on sale. Fortunately, I now have a full set and the large serving bowls and platters so I can relax. I was afraid the pattern might be discontinued.

These beautifully crafted and designed plates are unique and arrived on a timely basis. Since I am of Estonian origin,
they make a nice gift for a friend of mine, who increases her collection. I will continue to buy them and hope that you will advise me if they are ever on sale. Thank you.

Just what I wanted.
August 22, 2012
With its reputation for gorgeous and contemporary design,I have three of each colourway(blue,white&blue,orange korento) They are coordinated well with plain white dishes. Highly recommended if you are looking for some special colour and whimsy in your table. Also this salad plate can be used as a saucer with Taika cereal bowl.
