Beautiful pair of mid century Finnish/Norse salt and pepper shakers, designed by Esteri Tomula for Arabia, Finland. Circa 1960s vintage.
The design is from the 'Lappalainen' series, based the indigenous Sami people of North Scandinavia/ Lapland/ Arctic Circle. The black and beige print is to one side and depicts a stylised traditional man and woman. They are stamped to the bases with the Arabia logo and Finland. They have the original plastic filler caps under marked 'Made in Finland'. They are a fine white porcelain.
As you can see these are really good clean examples with no chips, crazing, cracks, dirt etc. A petite 4.5cm tall. More for display and for a collector - a hard to find Arabia Finland couple.
Price includes P&P to the UK.
