Rune on plates

Article about: Bought these in the Amsterdam flea market when I was living there. The back stamp dates them to before 1955, but a strange item to be producing straight after the war, IMO. Regards, Jerry

    Bought these in the Amsterdam flea market when I was living there. The back stamp dates them to before 1955, but a strange item to be producing straight after the war, IMO.

    Great items indead, but I think they are not to be related to "runes", but just geometrical decorating figures.

    I just find it strange that such a similar design to runes would be used within such a short period after the war. I agree that they are not Runes as such, but it seems a strange choice to use, bearing in mind their similarity and their recent significance.

    They would be Art Deco style but not of the period

    Indeed, way too late to be Deco, though in the style of that period. Still seems a strange choice for a German maker to produce these so soon after the war.

    The high art deco designs of the late 1930's was interupted by the war years. There was a limited revival post war and some 50's designs clearly showed the influence.
