Arabia handicraft, Finland. Small scale production stoneware. Black with blue underglaze. Small dishes ashtrays and wall plaques. These are my personal favourites.

    I have the 'bird' version of this and always loved it without knowing who it was by. I also love all things "Arabia" so I was surprised that this was made by them. Mine doesn't have any markings on the back, does yours?

    The pieces I have are marked and unmarked. They appear to wash off easily if they are left in water for any length of time. I spent some time researching the range, there is no doubt that it's by Arabia. The designer was Taisto Kassinen, who is better known as a sculptor in Finland. He also worked with Upsala Ekeby in Sweden.

    Thank you for your reply. I knew it was something unique but I
    hadn't ever come across one until I saw your great collection. I've had some Arabia items before where the label unexpectedly came off when I washed them and, as you know, it washes completely off, doesn't even leave a trace or a hint that it ever existed! Thanks again for your reply and happy hunting.
