Ruska (autumn colours, brown) is one of the most beautiful words in the Finnish language, meaning autumn colour. The design has a calm and relaxed atmosphere, which brings to mind autumn evenings camping or sitting by a cozy fire.
The rustic and earthy look defines this extremely popular series. Ruska’s rugged surface was created with an unusual decorating method: powdered black iron was sprayed to a matte glazing, giving each piece a slightly unique artisanal and smoky look. The colour of the glazing shifts in tone from paler to more deep tones. This change in colours gives the design a rustic feel.
Ruska is currently one of the most popular vintage designs we have. The original 1:st class production of Ruska series was stamped partly on top of the glaze and it often has worn away in use. That is why the stamped Ruska dishes are more rare. This series always sells out quickly, so we recommend you click the “Add to Wishlist” -button to be first to know when new stock arrives!
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.
There is no stamp on the product. It is original production, but it was stamped on top of the glaze and it has worn away in use.
There are some minor imperfections in these plates, such as a few tiny flaws or lighter spots on the coloured glazing and some minor signs of wear and tiny scratches. There are also some signs of wear and scratches. The additional photos show examples.
