    vetraio50
    (724 items)

    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."

    http://www.arabia.fi/en/Arabia-Story/COLLECTING-ARABIA/Factory-stamps

    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.

      Thanks Thomas. I’m more into coffee caffeine than tea. Hot Chocolate works for me too. I just had my bunions done and am feeling a little down ..... so a cuppa tea might pick me up. Thanks for the thought.
    29. Brunswick Brunswick, 2 years ago
      Kevin(Vetraio), Coffee is My staple drink! Throughout the day at times. My wife is a huge hot chocolate fan!! Again, these cups, especially the way you have them displayed, is inviting! Good luck with those bunions!!

      Thomas.
