Ruija (Finnmark, an area in Norwegian Lappland) features a pattern of hand-painted moss green leaves with reddish-brown plums and stripes on a background of subtle powdery peach colour. The combination is unusual and rather refined, yet with a naturally cosy atmosphere and a simple gracefulness. The pattern designed by Raija Uosikkinen has a beautiful rustic and autumnal feel suggestive of an orchard full of fruits ripe for harvest.

The name is suggestive the ancient traditions of Finnish and Lappish peoples. It refers to the most northern area of Lappland, directly above Finland, were some people still speak an ancient version of Finnish. A land of known for its rough beautiful autumn colours, pale pink mountains, and the artesanal skill of the Sami people.

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.

The colour of the glazing shifts in tone from paler to more deep tones. This change in colours gives the design a rustic feel.

A creamer is a container for milk or cream, used when serving tea or coffee. You can also use it for serving dressing or as a vase for small flowers.

There are some minor imperfections on these lovely vintage creamers. For example there are some marks of use like wear or small scratches. The glazing or ceramic mass might be a bit uneven: in some spots there are a few tiny lumps, dents and lighter or darker dots. In some cases the unglazed bottom ring is a bit uneven.
