Arabia Finland Orri

Arabia Finland Orri

I discovered Arabia about 10 years ago and have been finding it in my bargain hunting ever since. I collect the Pomona Jam Pots designed by Raija Uosikkinen and the occasional piece of blue & white like the Orri Jug designed by Kaj Franck.

Arabia has been producing tableware since 1873.  They have produced many well known ranges including Valencia, Ali, Pomona, Rosmarin and Ruska.

They attracted many great designers over the years including:

Ulla Procope from 1948-1966 who was responsible for the hand painted Valencia range and the mass-produced Rosmarin range.

Anja Jaatinen-Winquist and her husband Peter Winquist from 1967-1974. Anja Jaatinen-Winquist was responsible for the Pimpinella range of Demitasse Coffee Cups.

Raija Uosikkinen from 1968-1977 who was responsible for the Ali range, the Emelia range and the Pomona range.

Kaj Franck (1911-1989) who was responsible for the Orri pattern and Gunvor Olin-Gronqvist

They also produced arrange of glass items under the name ‘Finn Crystal’.
