    This lilac colour became sort of a signature for Tamara Aladin. Thesepieces were designed at the begining of the 1960s and are amongst her first designs, which are theones that show a greater inventiveness. The creamer and sugar bowl belong to the X sarja which receives its name for the X shape formed by the stand of all its pieces. As for the decanter, itbelongs to a small series of two decanters (this square-shaped and another rounded one) with matching glasses.

    In my "collecting plans" I fantasize about getting every single item designed for these two series.
