Arabia Finland Zoo Set Cup, Plate, Bowl. Brand new antique/vintage; absolutely perfect. Designed by Anja Juurikkala in 1949. Extremely rare original set, especially brand new (see below).
This mug was part of the Zoo collection designed by Anja Juurikkala which, on the cup, originally pictured people of different nationalities in their native dress. However, it was soon considered racist and was withdrawn from the market. It was replaced with a pattern consisting of only animals. Astialiisa; Runenerginkatu 59; 00260 Helsinki, Finland. I found two Arabia Finland childrens sets in their original tissue paper in a box in my grandmothers closet.I imagine she got these when my grandparents were in Scandinavia in the late 1950s.
