Arabia Finland has been producing tableware since 1873.  They have produced many well known ranges including Valencia, Ali, Rosmarin and Ruska.  They attracted many great designers over the years.

Ulla Procope (1921-1968) was a designer for Arabia Finland from 1948-1968.  She was responsible for several ranges, the Liekka, Valencia, Anemone, Rosmarin, Ruska, Koralli and Purpurinjenkka.  She also co-designed the very desirable jam pots with Raija Uosikkinen.
