■ Product introduction It is a tea cup and saucer of hand-painted tableware Valencia, which is synonymous with Arabia. Valencia has three types of demitasse cups, coffee cups, and tea cups, but this is the largest size tea cup.

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. Valencia was designed by Ulla Procoppe in 1961 and has become a timeless masterpiece with the most antique fans among ARABIA products. Procoppe is a legendary designer who was also responsible for the design of the long-run product Ruska and the rare Flora. She died of illness in 1968 at the young age of 47, but she was recuperated in the Canary Islands in Spain, and it is transmitted that Procope loved the Spanish seaside throughout her life. After her death, Valencia was produced in Finland for over 40 years until 2002, just like the other series. Since then, it has not been reprinted, and the only ones currently available are those on the vintage market.

This was produced between 1961 and the 1970s, when the production started, because the hand signature on the back of the cup and saucer was handwritten. Valencia temporarily ceased production in the 1980s, but after the revival, it is stamped as ARABIA with a type stamp. Valencia, with its handwritten signature, is the oldest vintage piece. UP is the initials of Ulla Procoppe, and the initials of the painter are separated by slashes and signed "NS".
