Paju (willow) is an ornamental pattern with two wheels inside one another. Together they form a flower with round petals. This retro decoration is finalised with blue stripes along the edges.

Arabia Paju was hand-painted in two colour combinations: blue-violet and blue-yellow. In Finland willows are associated with spring, which reflects the cheerful and fresh colours of this design.

The highlight of this design is the artful and calligraphic brush-strokes, which have required extreme skill. Arabia was indeed much admired for the talent of its ceramic painters. The hand-painted nature of the pattern makes each dish excitingly unique and the colours shift in tone from pale watercolour washes to deep and luxurious tones. This change in colours give the simple design an exciting illusion of three-dimensionality and depth.

The Paju series is a rare and much desired collectible.

A demitasse, or espresso cup is a smaller sized coffee cup for stronger coffee, mocha. It comes with a saucer, and it is usually about half the size of a normal coffee cup.

These beautiful cups are in good condition. They still have minor sings of wear and small scratches, which are difficult to see in photos

So if a bit of wear on your vintage items does not bother you - there are great deals to be made here!
