chicken chopper

Chopping board for chips and chicken!

Diameter 19 1/2 cm (just under 8") and thickness 1,5 cm (sorry, does not compute) and very very familiar - I just cannot seem to find it.
Are we in Denmark here or in Sweden? Or even in Germany?  Glue remnants point at a square label...

Out of the three, I would probably guess Swedish. Although it does remind me of some Norwegian ceramics I've had in the past.

Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Ivo, I have quite a few Scandinavian ceramics with these sorts of designs on - my hunch would be to totally discount Denmark and Germany and say it's probably either Swedish, Norwegian or Finnish - probably not much help I know!

My guess would be Swedish, mostly as they seem to have made so many variants of these.
Hadeland used square stickers (also round) but if it had a sticker it should have been signed also?

Not Plus, Magnor or Randsfjord I think.

I have a labelled Hadeland plate that's not signed.

Hmm, I haven't looked at plates and mould/pressed glass from Hadeland yet - better read up.

I think all their glass classified as "art glass" is signed if it's not a second, seconds marked with an x.
All their new glass is signed these days apart from seconds and trials.

Still leaning towards Swedish but can't discount H.
