Greta-Lisa Jäderholm-Snellman 1926
Greta-Lisa Jäderholm-Snellman (1894–1973) worked as a ceramic artist for Arabia from 1921 to 1937. She is considered to be the creator of decorative painting at Arabia. Jäderholm-Snellman, who also lived in Paris for several years, provided Arabia’s tableware with restrained, geometric patterns with echoes of 1920s classicism and art deco.
Arabia is one of Finland’s oldest brands and has been a part of Finnish life in both everyday life and celebrations. Arabia celebrates Finland’s centenary with a limited edition of ten different mugs. Patterns decorating the mugs are derived from each decade of Finland’s independence, and they tell the stories of their time. The mugs have a special centenary stamp on the base.
To honor Finland’s centenary Arabia created a special line of ten mugs. The Finland’s centenary mugs depict history of Finnish design, table setting and Finnish homes: each pattern reflects a decade from the hundred years of Finland’s independence.
The Arabia Finland’s centenary mugs have a special centenary bottom stamp: Independent Finland’s centenary 2017. Each mug is 0,3 dl in size.
