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 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.
The saucers of these practical vintage mugs are in good condition. There are some signs of wear and small scratches on the cups. There might be a tiny bubble in the glazing.
