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.
