This is a nice set of six matching Ruska side plates. They are made of chunky stoneware and have a subtle mottled matt brown glaze.   

“Ruska” means “autumn” in Finnish and it was used by the designer Ulla Procope to evoke the earthy and rustic colours of the Finnish autumn landscape. The glazed surface was created with an unusual decorating method: powdered black iron was sprayed on top of a  matte base glaze, giving each piece a slightly unique artisan and smoky look. The traditional rustic colour of the glazing shifts in tone from paler to more deep tones. 


This is a handy set of vintage Finnish stoneware side plates that date to the early 1960s. They were created by the celebrated designer Ulla Procope. The white printed mark on the base of each plate has sadly disappeared over time,  but these are clearly genuine vintage Ruska pieces.  

These traditional Finnish stoneware items are now keenly sought after.  Arabia Pottery is always made to the best quality - and these wee plates are all in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. There are no cutlery marks to the surface of any of the plates. 

Dimensions: each plate has a diameter of 6 1/4 inches. 

Have listed these plates at a unit price of only £8 each plate. So the grand total is £48. 

Due to the weight of the set - they will have to be for UK posting only. I will send it with Parcelforce tracked delivery so I can pack it up safely in a large sturdy box. This will cost £10 and applied to your order at the checkout. If I can post cheaper for you - I will refund any postal overpayments. 

I have some other pieces of Ruska in my online store - these can be added to your parcel at no extra postal cost to you.
