Three days ago I headed off to the Salvo's and was attracted by these two chocolate (or coffee) cups and saucers. It was the shape that attracted my eye .... I turned over the cup and there was no mark ...
The mark was under the saucer! Arabia of Finland !!!!
I was really surprised with the form and the decoration. It just looked too 'refined' for Arabia. More fool me, I suppose. Definitely Scandinavian Modern but with a traditional European elegance.
The mark is one used by the factory during the period 1949 to 1964. "Export market mark (1949-64), also widely used for the home market."
I believe the mark also includes a date code for March 1962.
But the design is a mystery ....
Both the design name and its designer have so far eluded me.
I'd appreciate any help from the CW Crew !!!!
I love the two stripes: really elegant.
