Arabia Finland teapot

I couldn’t make out the maker’s mark on this teapot when I bought it (there is one, but it’s very, very faint), but I knew that there was something special about it. The simplicity of the design, with the understated matte glaze and the cane handle means, that you could easily overlook it, but really it’s its plainness that makes it so attractive – and timeless. This teapot was designed in 1953 by Ulla Procope for Arabia, Finland, making the design more than 60 years old! Arabia continued to produce the teapot for a good few years after that date though, so I’m not sure exactly how old this particular teapot is, but it’s in excellent condition, with the only real sign of wear being to the cane handle.

A very attractive and super collectible teapot that would look wonderful on display in a modern kitchen.

Note: This is a relatively small teapot – please pay attention to the dimensions below.

Dimensions: 11.5cm tall (excl. handle) x 11cm in diameter; 16.5cm tall incl. handle
