Awesome 83-piece set of vintage mid-century modern stoneware dinner service designed by Ulla Procope for her Ruska Collection by Arabia Finland. All pieces are in wonderful vintage condition overall with a few minor exceptions. See below for a full list of pieces and photos for colors and condition.

This dinner service by Ulla Procope for Arabia Finland is from her Ruska Collection. The shape of all the pieces is wonderful but the magnificent glaze is a sight to behold!!! The combination is nothing short of spectacular. Designed in 1960 it became one of the best-selling lines in Arabia’s history. And it continued into the 1990s due to its popularity. This design is a Scandinavian classic! It was the first time Arabia used a matte glaze of mass-produced utilitarian ware. Its mottled glaze and colors turn out slightly different with every piece giving it a handcrafted look and feel. This set of 83 pieces will go a long way toward a complete set. You must make it yours.
