Pomona Strawberry Side Plates - decoration by Raija Uosikkinen Arabia
These plates belong to a very popular summer inspired table ware set named Pomona Strawberry. They are ca 19 cm in diameter.
The decoration pattern is designed by Raija Uosikkinen, the chief decorator at Arabia from 1947 to 1986. Kaarina Aho is the designer of the the shape of the plates in this series. These were in production 1965-73.
These pieces are old and the pattern is on the surface of the plate, not under the glaze. The strawberries would get pale in repeated contact with dishwasher chemicals. So these table ware should not be washed in a dishwasher!
We also have two 23,5 cm plates and one 31 cm serving plate of this same series. Check these out as well! Then we also have a small jar with the same theme. The shape of the jar is designed by Kai Franck.
