Arabia Finland Kauppatori

Arabia Finland Kauppatori

A superb recent find. At first glance I thought this was a variation of the iconic “Emilia” series by Raija Uosikkinen, but it turns out to be from a series of designs called “Kauppatori”, in the same drawn style as Emilia but quite different when you look at it more closely.

The design seems to be very rare, and from what I can see only on 2 forms – both deep serving plates.

It is named after the famous Market Square in Helsinki, Finland….one of the most famous tourist attractions in the city.

The design features similar charming characters to those in “Emilia” but the townscape, market characters, the use of green, as well as black line drawing set the design apart.

There is a fantastic Finnish website HERE where a lot of research as gone into the history of “Emilia” and all the designs like this one, related to it. I often refer to it
