Retro Finnish Percolator – SOLD

Finel coffee percolator

Finel coffee percolator

It’s been years since I’ve been lucky enough to come across one of these Arabia Finel coffee percolators! I think the last time I sold one was nearly four years ago, right at the beginning of Mint, when I had never heard of Arabia and didn’t have a clue what it was that I was selling! I knew that I liked it (a lot!), but had no idea how collectible Scandi designs are, and in particular this 1950s coffee percolator by Finnish designer Antti Nurmesniemi, which seems to make people go nuts (or at least pay crazy prices). And this is a lovely example in near mint condition, plus it’s bright red which never hurts matters!

Probably one of the coolest coffee percolators that you can buy. I would so love to add to this to our collection of coffee pots, but alas there are no spots left on the stove!

Note: This coffee pot comes in two sizes – this is the smaller of the sizes so please pay attention to the dimensions below.

Dimensions: 15cm tall x 11cm in diameter

Price: R360

Note: Mint puts up four new items every weekday. The first post goes up at 07h00, the second at 08h00 and the third and fourth at 08h30. You can subscribe to our daily email which goes out at around 09h00 by clicking on the pink envelope on the right hand side of the blog
