Arabia Coffee Mugs & Espresso Cups (Per Set)

R200.00R240.00

The Ruska range of ceramics from Finnish design house, Arabia, is considered a Scandinavian design classic, largely because it was in production for so many years – even in South Africa, many of us will remember that classic ’70s-style glaze from our childhood. In fact Ruska was first designed for Arabia in 1960 by Ulla (Ulrika) Procopé (1921-1968), but remained a top seller all the way through to the ’90s. The Ruska series is pretty expansive, and I thought that I’d seen all the variations until a Mint friend messaged me a few weeks ago about some Arabia she had for sale – I couldn’t quite tell how large they were from the photos, and so I was delighted when they arrived and I discovered that they’re actually espresso sized! I’m pretty sure I’ve never come across any Ruska espresso cups before! And on the other end of the spectrum we have the Ruska coffee mugs, which are quite substantial in size – bigger than most of the Ruska cups we’ve sold before. Sadly there are only five of the mugs and saucers, but to make up for that we have not one, but two sets of the rare Ruska espresso cups!

Dimensions: Ruska coffee mugs & saucers – 8.5cm tall x 8.5cm in diameter/14.5cm in diameter; Ruska espresso cups & saucers – 4.5cm tall x 7cm in diameter/12.5cm in diameter
