Nyyrikki (an old male given name) refers to a spirit or god in Finnish mythology that guards, helps and protects hunters in the woods. It is a hand-painted ornament with round shapes resembling plums in blue and olive green, between blue stripes. Because of the hand-paint and a short production time (only 2 years), the series is rare. Hand-painting is designed to be rough, to ensure the handicraft feeling in the dishes.
A bowl is a round, open-top container to serve hot and cold food. You can use it for serving soup, salad, yogurt or as a mixing bowl. Traditional tableware included 1-3 serving bowls of various sizes. They are delightful eye-catching items, even when used individually. The bowls can be used for both preparing food and display.
There are some imperfections on these beautiful bowls: some small but visible spots of white or bubbles on the glazing, otherwise it is in a very good condition. Please see the additional photo for an example.
