Rosmarin (rosemary, a herb) features hand-painted flowers, leaves and stripes in a beautifully warm reddish brown tone.
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.
This nordic vintage design and decoration were both made by the same artist, Ulla Procopé. The decoration was also made in blue under the name Anemone.
A mug is a larger type of cup typically used for drinking hot beverages, such as coffee, hot chocolate, soup, or tea. A mug is a less formal type of drinkware, and is not usually used in a formal table setting.
Mugs are very practical and durable which makes them a perfect fit for busy everyday moments when you can't just focus on the coffee, but instead read, work etc. at the same time, but still want some style.
These popular vintage mugs have some small imperfections. The glazing might be a bit uneven and have a few tiny lumps, bubbles, pinholes or darker spots.
