Child's mug, bowl, plate vintage Arabia of Finland Parade pattern
|Online Auction Description|
Child's breakfast set, ceramic plate, mug and bowl. Cheerful Parade pattern by Arabia of Finland
Bowl measures 6â across; height 1 1/4â two pinholes can be seen on top side of rim. These are as smooth as the rest of the glaze which seems odd.
Plate measures just under of 8â. See close up of a small chip on the rim.
Mug stands 3â and is 3â across; has no cracks or chips.
Arabia has made outstanding ceramics for about a century and a half. Their award winning designers are known for producing attractive items for both daily use and gift ware. Their products last remarkably well due to Arabia's use of dense, hard-fired vitreous china. (Items are fired at 1260 degrees Centigrade for 20 hours.) The glazes used are lead-free, making them safe for children.
I wondered about the name of the pattern for this child's set. I spent days combing possible information sources and coming up empty-handed. Then I came across a long, long list of Arabia patterns and simply plowed through them. Finally, there it was â a single picture - and the pattern was called Parade.
This pattern is reported to have been discontinued in 1963, the year we acquired the set. The marks indicate they were made for export at different times during the period starting in 1949.
An interesting side note is that the famous blue-on-white Arabia factory marks on these items is green on white!
Our sons loved the animals. It's a testament to Arabia quality that the set is still in such good condition, ready for some other lucky young 'uns to use and enjoy.
