Snowflake is a charming indigo blue winter decoration. It was designed by Raija Uosikkinen for Olga Osol's pale blue faience dishes. The decoration has small blue snowflakes, which hover and form a wreath along the edge of the light blue dishes. Each snowflake is a little different, just like in nature.

Arabia Snowflake's design is made with beautiful delicate lines. You can see the decoration involved a lot of craftsmanship, and the small snowflakes are not always quite accurate or symmetrical. Also the intensity of the colour may vary and the tips of some snowflakes may even be missing. This variety in style and detailed decoration was achieved by using a rubber stamp technique. Each snowflake was stamped by hand.

The Snowflake tableware series was made in the 1950s and only for export. So surprisingly it can be found in places around the world, but is rare in Finland!

A plate for a main course, often used as a dinner plate. This is usually a flat plate type.

These lovely 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 or dents. The plates show minor signs of wear and a few small scratches. Please see the photos of these rare vintage items.
