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. The iittala Taika White / Blue Salad Plate is just right for serving salads, snacks or appetizers, and can be mixed and matched with other iittala lines such as Teema and Kartio.

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

Beautiful style, superior quality
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.

Hey! It's Iittala-- it's going to be a plate, obviously. It will be lovely for the holidays.

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!

Love this pattern
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.

Beautiful and durable
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.
ProsGorgeous design, very durable

Beautiful blue Taika
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.

We love these
The whole Taika place setting is wonderful. We love to mix and match the colors, but all red at holiday time is extra special.
February 13, 2016
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.

Company ethical issue?
You changed the price in order to put it on sale. Rather an ethical issue, wouldn't you say?

Why is red so hard to find?
I wanted to send this design red mugs to my family for Christmas but somehow they were not available, much to my dismay. At least I got a plate to add to my collection.

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.
Not too fragile for use w/children
ConsWhat's to dislike? Nothing!

iitala Taike Salad plates and mugs
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.
ProsDesign - craftmanship
Perhaps I would appreciate being able to buy them at a lower cost, since they have gone up in price considerably.

Just what I wanted.
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.

Exceptionally satisfying. We ordered the blue and white/blue and are happy with both
