Birger Kaipiainen Double Signed Bowl for Arabia Pottery
Description: This is not your average piece of art pottery. The bowl is made and painted by Birger Kaipiainen, one of the top designers at Arabia Pottery in Finland for almost half of the 20th century.
The bowl has a flattened pie crust edge and features a stylized image of two women. The art is signed Kaipiainen along the edge.
Something that makes this bowl unusual compared to even most of the signed Kaipiainen items is that this one is also incised BK Arabia on the back, which suggests that Kaipiainen also made the bowl. I have not found another double-marked example (although some items i found online don't show the back, which I consider poor listing).
Dimensions: Diameter is about 15".
Condition: The ceramic and decoration are in excellent condition with just some crazing. In the picture of the back, you can see areas where the top glaze has curdled rather than filling/spreading. I'm assuming that this is not intentional, and the price is reduced accordingly. Of course, all our sales are fully guaranteed.
To buy an item (or more), just e-mail us, or you can call us at 812-467-0191.
We'll confirm that the item is still available, make sure we agree on the total, and answer any questions you wish to throw our way. Checks or money orders should be made "Forrest OR Virginia Poston". We also take Paypal (including credit card payments).
We try to ship in one or two days after payment arrives, and we're generous with the bubblewrap and styrofoam peanuts.
If there's something you'd like us to find for you, let us know. We're just itching to please you, or maybe that was poison ivy we got into.
Remember that all proceeds go to support good causes: my spouse, our cats (see the "staff" here), our creditors, my auction addiction, and the plumbing project that never ends.
