This is a vintage salt box from ARABIA, a leading Finnish tableware manufacturer. While designer Gunval Olin Granqvist was in charge of designing mass-produced products at ARABIA, he also had his own in-house studio where he collaborated with painters to create handmade items.

ARABIA pottery marked with Ateljer GOG remains popular to this day. This salt box is one of the atelier's creations. It is an artistic piece with vivid colors and a leaf pattern with a flower petal in the middle. The bottom is signed with Granqvist's initials GOG and the painter's initials.

There is a nail hole in the center of the flower painting at the top so that it can be hung on the wall, or it can be placed on a table or used as a small item holder or interior decoration.

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.
