Arabia Meri (sea) decoration is a beautiful combination of hand-painted black and brown stripes suggestive of waves reaching the shoreline, with little pigment spots blown underneath a bright sea-blue coloured glazing. These enchanting little spots are like tiny marine creatures or pebbles underneath the waves. This technique gives each item a unique and softly undulating surface. The series has a relaxed and cosy atmosphere.
The colour of the glazing shifts in tone from paler to more deep tones. This change in colours gives the design a rustic feel.
A set of a cup and a saucer for hot drinks. Usually used for serving tea, but also hot chocolate or coffee with milk.
The colour of these beautiful teacups has some variation in it, such as darker or lighter spots on the glazing, as is typical for the Meri series. There are also some signs of wear, such as small scratches especially on the cups. There might also be some imperfections on the glazing like tiny pinholes, lumps or bubbles.
These Class 2 vintage Meri teacups still are beautiful and fit to use.
