Riikka (female given name) features a cute flower pattern in black and blue or brown.
The pattern was made using the air-brush stencil technique, which leaves the edges of the pattern beautifully soft and fuzzy. This technique has a strong vintage feel and was very popular in the 60s and 70s. The hand-painted stripes used as a finishing touch create a watercolour-like effect and bring variety to the colours and liveliness to the otherwise even printed pattern. The hand-painting gives an authentic artisanal feel to this nordic vintage series.
A set of a cup and a saucer for hot drinks. Usually used for serving coffee- or espresso-based drinks but also hot chocolate or tea. Beautiful coffee cups are popular as gifts. They fit well for both a hurry-free everyday and celebrations.
Many collect these cups for their diverse decorations and for the fact they don't take up much space and look cute even on a shelf.
These cute cups are in good vintage condition, they still have some minor signs of use, such as tiny scratches. They have minor imperfections such as inaccuracy in the hand-painting or a few small darker dots or spots. There is some unevenness on the glazing, a few tiny lumps, dents, pinholes or bubbles. The additional photo shows an example.
