    I have a 7 3/4″ dia plate Arabia Finland H LA/SL. It has a white trim blue/purple outside sunflower leaves
    then blue/tiehl and the center is dark almost black with a circle of dark blue at the center.
    I would love to purchase a couple more plates if available.
    Thank you, Judy

      Hello Judy. Thank you for the message as I had not seen this pattern before so I did a little research.
      I know the ‘HLA’ is for Hilkka-Lissa Aloha, a designer at Arabia from 1947-74. I have one of her yellow sunflower plates in the same size. This size is the appetizer plate (20cm) and they are hand-painted.
      Your pattern is called ‘Hehku’ (‘Glow’ in English) and appears to be much rarer than the yellow sunflower she did. does not even list the pattern. The only other item I can find in the pattern is a 32cm plate/platter.
      I expect that you will be very lucky if you can find any for sale in Australia. A pair sold on ETSY for AU$198. There is a 32cm one in the US on eBay #155019745303 for S$50.
      Sorry I could not point you to more plates. Look after the ones you have.
      regards Cheryl
