It is a rare soup turin that was released in 1970 by ARABIA, a tableware maker representing Finland. Apira means clover in Finnish, and the design is studded with white clover and trefoil all over. Tableware manufactured by ARABIA was stamped with the year and month of manufacture until the early 1970s. 8-71 (August 1971) is stamped on the back stamp on the bottom of this piece, indicating that it was made just before Apira's production ended.

Apira produced reprinted cups from 2006 to 2010, but Soup Turin is not resold and is only available as a vintage product. In addition, it is an extremely rare item with little distribution worldwide . Another characteristic of ARABIA is that the reprinted version has a darker and clearer white background. The characteristic of vintage is that the color is pale and has a gentle color.

There is a chip of less than 1mm in one place on the handle. It was attached in the process of being stored because there is no trace of use inside the main unit. There are three post marks on the bottom plate at the time of manufacture. In addition, there are black spots and scratches due to the manufacturing process on the edge of the base, and cracks under the glaze in one place, but they have passed the manufacturer's inspection. Except for the chipped handle, it is in unused condition as it was when it was manufactured.

There are hairlines under the glaze at the base of the round knob of the lid and the handle of the main body, but these are not cracks but are caused by gluing the parts later in the manufacturing process.

■ About Birger Kaipiainen

Birger Kaipiainen

Birger Kaipiainen ( 1915-1988)

Born in Pori, southwestern Finland, on the coast of the Gulf of Bothnia. Finland's leading designer, known as the "King of Decorators". Although his family moved to Helsinki when he was young, Kaipiainen spends each summer in a homestay in the Russian town of Sortavala. The sense of nature and artistry nurtured there will influence him for the rest of his life. When Kaipiainen was young, he suffered from polio, which left him walking with a cane for the rest of his life. He was unable to turn a potter's wheel on his own due to a disability in one hand, but it is said that this actually served as an opportunity for him to hone his artistic sense.

Kaipiainen graduated from Aalto University, Finland's premier art university, and joined ARABIA in 1937. From 1954, he also transferred to Rorstrand in Sweden for four years. In the heyday of simple and unadorned Nordic modern art, Kaipiainen's designs are rich in decorativeness and are characterized by detailed depictions drawn to every corner. He has built a unique view of the world that is distinct from the mainstream of the times, and designed Paratish in 1969, Apia in 1970, and Sunnuntai in 1971. These are still the reprinted editions of the ARABIA brand and are the flagship products.
