This auction is for a trio of vintage ‘Arabia’ porcelain items of mid-century ‘Emilia’ design and painted by acclaimed painter, Raija Uosikkinen.

Raija Uosikkinen (b. 1923 in Hollola, d. 2004 in Helsinki) studied at the Central School of Art and Design for porcelain painters from 1944 to 1947. She then worked as a decorator and designer for Arabia from 1947 to 1986.

Raija Uosikkinen and Esteri Tomula had an important role as decorative designers in the renewal of Arabia's decorative production in the late 1940's and 1950's. Uosikkinen designed many decoratives for Kaj Franck's industrial manufactured products. Designs for B-Model such as Polaris and Linnea were popular, as well as playful Emilia decorations.

Raija Uoaikkinen participated in numerous domestic and foreign exhibitions and was working alongside the work of Esteri Tomula as a teacher, as well as at the free institute Toimela and the University of Art and Design.
