Price per item
Faenza (a town in Northern Italy, birthplace of faience ceramics) comes in four variations in decoration; with flowers printed in brown or blue, and with stripes either in yellow-and-black or black alone.
Arabia Faenza adds bold designs to a simple functional shape. It is a clever combination of 1950s Finnish mid-century modernism and the 1970s graphic style. Faenza's design won the gold medal in Italy in 1971 at the Faenza Ceramic Biennale.
You can combine the floral and striped variations of the Faenza decoration to create contrast between natural and geometric shapes. This design made by Inkeri Seppälä will bring a modern Nordic touch to your home.
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.
This lovely bowl has some white spots on the flower pattern and some unevenness on the glazing, such as tiny lumps or bubbles. However this popular bowl is still in rather good vintage condition. Please see the additional photo for an example.
