It is a plate of hand-painted tableware Valencia, which is synonymous with ARABIA. The Valencia series includes tea cups, soup turins, cutting boards, juicers, pitchers, teapots, and other tableware. This is a powerful 26cm size platter.

The series name Valencia is the name of a port town in the southeastern part of Spain, and the deep cobalt blue color expresses the dull color of the Mediterranean sea and the strong sunlight. Designer Ulla Procoppe designed Valencia in 1961, and this work has become a timeless masterpiece with the most antique fans among ARABIA products. Procoppe is also responsible for the design of the long-running product Ruska and the rare Flora.

Procoppe died of an illness in 1968 at the young age of 47, but she was recuperated in the Canary Islands in Spain, and it is said that she spent her entire life with the beaches of Spain. After her death, Valencia went into long-run production like the other series, and was manufactured in Finland for over 40 years until 2002. Since then, it has not been reprinted, and the only ones currently available are those on the vintage market.

In addition, this is thought to have been produced around the 1960s and 1970s because the hand sign on the back is handwritten. Valencia has been temporarily discontinued and revived since the 1980s, but after the revival, it was stamped with ARABIA with a type stamp, and the handwritten signature was no longer drawn.

The hand-signed Valencia is therefore the oldest of the vintages. UP is the initials of Ulla Procoppe, and the painter's initials are signed on the right side separated by slashes.
