Is It Vintage - Easter with Jupiter

New posting series comes here: Is It Vintage. It will come out once in the month but not always the same way. I thought it would be great to begin your week with Jupiter. They are designed by talented designer and artisan Raija Uosikkinen. She worked as a decorator and designer for Arabia in 1947 - 1986. Jupiter was manufactured in the years 1960-67 and Arabia is very Finnish brand. You can find almost all her production here. If you want to know a little about Raija Uosikkinen, it´s here. And if you feel you want to buy some old Finnish tableware you can find it here. If you are interested about new Arabia, it's here. If you are interested in older Arabia by designer(valitse suunnittelija), decoration(valitse koriste) or stamp (valitse leima), you find great information here. It's only in Finnish but you need only few words and I've written them after english versions, see above...Ok? Hopefully. Do ask if not.

Yes, now we get back to oh, so wonderful Jupiter! You might already know my love to vintage and old things. Well, here's some ideas to your Easter table setting. Feathers, flowers and unbleached cotton fabric.
