In the early 1990s, the Finnish Association for Nature Conservation (Suomen luonnonsuojeluliitto) commissioned a series of coffee cups and plates from the Arabia factory for its members. The series depicted Finnish summer flowers, and the motifs were printed onto the Arabia Moreeni model. Later, Arabia also used these motifs for the Arabia Arctica series plates and cups.
There are a total of 12 different Finnish Summer Flower motifs:
Catsfoot, Red clover, Clammy campion, Glaucous dog rose, Maiden pink, Harebell, Cow vetch, Germander speedwell, Heath violet, Wild pansy, Common bent and Clustered bellflower.
A luncheon plate or a side plate for appetizers, salads, dessert, or bread and butter. Used for sets with teacups.
This summery plate has a few small spots of paint left from the manufacturing, and some tiny scratches.
