This is a fantastic masterpiece crocus from ARABIA, Finland's leading tableware manufacturer. Crocus is a type of iris flower. There are two types of Crocus teapots, a black and white version and a color version, but this is the black and white version. The Crocus series was produced for only two years from 1978 to 1979, and in recent years, reprints of mugs, bowls, and 17cm plates have been produced.

However, the reprinted version is made in Thailand and has a sweeter form, and the canister, cup and saucer, and teapot seen in the original Crocus are not reprinted. Vintage crocuses are very popular items even in their home country of Finland, and it is becoming rare to see them in the vintage market. Due to its rarity, the market price is high. In particular, the teapot is a collector's item that has a presence like a king among crocuses.

ARABIA - Arabia

ARABIA factory

ARABIA is a ceramic manufacturer representing Finland in the 20th century. Originally, ARABIA was a factory established in Finland by Sweden's Rörstrand as a base for producing pottery for Russia. The company's name comes from the fact that it was established in the Arabian district of Helsinki, the capital.

From the 1950s to the 1980s, many world-famous designers such as Ulla Procoppe, Birger Kaipiainen, Laiya Uosikkinen, and Esteri Tomura created many works, known as the Golden Age of ARABIA. Works that had a great influence on modern modern design were created at the time, from simple Scandinavian modern designs to highly decorative and well-crafted pieces. ARABIA is known for its masterpieces such as paratissi, crocus, flora, and corari, which are both practical and decorative items unique to Scandinavian tableware that are useful for both interior and everyday use.
