Kekri (traditional Finnish harvest festival celebrated in autumn) has a graphic and abstract blue or brown decoration made by screen printing.
The beautiful modern decoration with lovely thin lines was made by Raija Uosikkinen. It depicts flowers and wheat stalks, which seem to be dancing in the cool autumn wind. The pattern is laid out in a circle shape, like a snow-flake, and reminds us that the autumn will soon change to winter.
This nordic vintage pattern is a great example of design from the late 1960s, when Finnish folk arts and craft motifs were popular. In Helsinki the traditional Kekri festival is still celebrated each year at the Suomenlinna fortress island.
A plate mainly for soup, that can also be used as a bowl for breakfast, pasta, rice or side dishes. These multi-purpose traditional deep plates have a decorative edge that beautifully frames the food.
The wide edge makes it easy to pass around the dishes and supports cutlery. For this reason, the deep plate also serves as a beautiful serving dish. Thanks to the edge the plate is firmly seated on drying racks.
These cute soup plates have some small imperfections. There are, for example, some tiny dark dots and inaccuracy of the pattern. The glazing might be a bit uneven and have a few tiny lumps.
There are also some small marks of use, such as tiny scratches. There are two different Arabia labels on the plates. Please see the photos of these lovely vintage items.
