Saara (a female given name) features a stencil printed decoration with cobalt blue and white flowers on brown and black. The finishing touch has been hand painted with blue and black stripes.
Saara was born in the studio of Anja Jaatinen-Winquist during the summer of love 1969. This pattern has a flower power, positivity and the peace-loving attitude of the hippie movement. The perfect decoration to bring happiness and joy to your day.
The pattern was made made using the air-brush stencil technique, which leaves the edges of the pattern beautifully soft and fuzzy. This technique has a strong vintage feel and was very popular in the 60s and 70s. The hand-painted stripes used as a finishing touch create a watercolour-like effect and bring variety to the colours and liveliness to the otherwise stable printed pattern. The hand-painting gives an authentic artisanal feel to this nordic vintage series.
Another variation of this design, Arabia Kara, was made in 1972.
A luncheon plate or a side plate for appetizers, salads, dessert, or bread and butter. Used for sets with teacups.
