This unnamed series of flower decorated teacups were painted by Hilkka-Liisa Ahola in the mid 1960s. They are sometimes called Arabia HLA (after the initials of the designer).

This Arabia hand-painted series design has gained popularity for its interesting and vibrant colours. The design came in three colour combinations: turquoise-lilac-yellow, moss green-turquoise-blue, and orange-yellow-terracotta. The colour palette reminds one of Finnish interior design from the 1960-70s.

The highlight of this design is the artful and calligraphic brush-strokes, which have required extreme skill. Arabia was indeed much admired for the talent of its ceramic painters. The hand-painted nature of the pattern makes each dish excitingly unique and the colours shift in tone from pale watercolour washes to deep and luxurious tones. This change in colours give the simple design an exciting illusion of three-dimensionality and depth.

These nordic vintage teacups were produced in the Arabia Art Department until the beginning of 1970s. They are gorgeous and collectibles and still so robust and usable.

These cute and rare vintage teacups are in good condition, but there is some unevenness in the coloured glazing of the saucers and tiny marks of usage. It inevitably sells out fast. If we are out of stock, click on the Add to Wishlist -button to be the first to know when we have more available!

A set of a cup and a saucer for hot drinks. Usually used for serving tea, but also hot chocolate or coffee with milk. Did you know that Finnish vintage teacups are actually rarer than the coffee cups? This why they are also more valuable.
