Salla (an arctic hill in Finnish Lappland, a female given name) features grey and white stripes on a base of soft gray coloured stoneware mass. The pastel colour palette has understated elegance and a beautiful glow. This nordic vintage design has a soft and calm atmosphere, like winter in Finland.
The subtle grey stripe shifts between tones of green and blue depending on the lighting. The stripes create a watercolour-like effect, which brings variation and liveliness to an otherwise simple pattern. The hand-painting gives an authentic artisanal feel to this Nordic vintage series.
Arabia Salla was designed by Raija Uosikkinen in the 1970s for Ulla Procope's popular S-model.
A set of a cup and a saucer for hot drinks. Usually used for serving tea, but also hot chocolate or coffee with milk. Did you know that Finnish vintage teacups are actually rarer than the coffee cups? This why they are also more valuable.
These practical teacups are in good vintage condition. There are only minor dark signs of wear. There are a few tiny bubbles on the glazing and some tiny dark dots or spots. The additional photos show examples.
