A classic bit of mid-century design from the Arabia Ruska range... This chunky and tactile retro pottery/stoneware egg cup has an unusual drip catching collar around. The glazes on these vary enormously between tan and brown to black, this one is a darker brown/black with lighter tan brown highlights. It's printed to the base with 'Arabia Made in Finland'. (The stamps wash off in the dishwasher, so this has been well looked after and hand washed only). The Ruska glaze was designed by Ulla Procopé in around 1960 and was produced until around the mid 1970s. The name Ruska roughly translates from the Finnish as 'Autumn'. Simple and beautifully designed, very tactile and smooth with a speckled matt and satin finish. The backstamp reads 'Arabia Made in Finland 12-72' which suggests it dates from 1972. Excellent condition, no chips or cracks. These all have deliberate irregularities in the glaze, so they're all different. 7cm wide x 4cm tall. The inner hole is 4.1cm wide and 3cm deep. Perfect as a spare or replacement. Includes P&P to the UK.
