Pomona Strawberry Serving platter - decoration by Raija Uosikkinen Arabia
This serving platter is from the 60-s. It is 31cm in diameter, and belongs to a very popular summer inspired table ware set named Pomona Strawberry.
The decoration pattern is 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 Pomona Strawberry 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 some 19 cm plates and two 23,5cm plates of the 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.
