Otso (a bear, lord of the forest in Finnish mythology) series came in two variations: decorated and undecorated. When combined, the two variations create interesting variety and the pattern flows nicely from one version to the next. They make a charming pair of friends, so it is such a delight to own both versions.

This is the decorated version. It features leafy pattern made by combining special brush printing and hand painting. Maybe you will find some colours of honey and brown in this ornamental decoration featuring flowers, acorns and leaves with brown and green stripes?

The pattern was made made using the air-brush stencil technique, which leaves the edges of the pattern beautifully soft and fuzzy. This technique has a strong vintage feel and was very popular in the 60s and 70s. The hand-painted stripes used as a finishing touch create a watercolour-like effect and bring variety to the colours and liveliness to the otherwise simple pattern. The hand-painting gives an authentic artisanal feel to this nordic vintage series.

The colour of the glazing shifts in tone from paler to more deep tones. This change in colours gives the design a rustic feel. Arabia Otso has a playful and mysterious forest atmosphere. Its bold decoration designed by Raija Uosikkinen has a folk art style typical of 70s Finnish decorations.

A bowl is a round, open-top container to serve hot and cold food. You can use it for serving soup, salad, yogurt or as a mixing bowl. Traditional tableware included 1-3 serving bowls of various sizes. They are delightful eye-catching items, even when used individually. The bowls can be used for both preparing food and display.

Heat-resistant oven dish or a small casserole, suitable for cooking food in an oven. You can serve it directly from the oven to table.

This cute and practical vintage bowl has a small chip on the unglazed bottom ring. There are also a few tiny bubbles and some variation in colour. This lovely bowl is still beautiful and safe to use, even with the bit rougher quality. The additional photos show examples.
