ARABIA's signature hand-painted tableware Valencia plate. The Valencia series includes a complete range of tableware that decorates your dining table, including teacups, soup tureens, cutting boards, juicers, pitchers, and teapots. This is the most basic 19.5cm size plate.

The series name, Valencia, is the name of a port city in southeastern Spain, and the deep cobalt blue color represents the dull-colored sea of ​​the Mediterranean Sea and the strong sunlight. Designer Ulla Procope designed Valencia in 1961, and it has become a timeless masterpiece with the most antique fans among ARABIA products.

Procope is also responsible for the design of the long-running Ruska and the highly rare Flora. She died of illness at the young age of 47 in 1968, but she was recuperated in Spain's Canary Islands, demonstrating that Procope loved the Spanish coastline throughout her life. After her death, Valencia, like other series, went into long-run production and was manufactured in Finland for over 40 years until 2002. It has not been reprinted since then, and the only ones currently available are those on the vintage market.

The hand signature on the back of this item was handwritten, so it was produced in the 1960s or 1970s. Production of Valencia was temporarily discontinued after the 1980s, but it has been revived, but after its revival, it is engraved with ARABIA with a typed stamp, and the one with a handwritten signature is the oldest among the vintage. Masu. UP is the initial signature of Ulla Procope, and is signed with the artist's initials separated by slashes.

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.
