This is a teapot and a cup from the 'MAHONKI' series produced by Arabia in Finland. It was designed by designer Ulla Procopé during the 1960's. Mahonki means mahogany in Finnish and refers to the shade of the glaze.
Note: The cup comes from a different batch of production and has a slightly more green shade, but they are still really great together. The cup has a NV stamp in the clay on the bottom which refers to the model - it originally came with an Arabia sticker, but that is gone by now.
Ulrika (Ulla) Eleonora Matilda Procopé-Nyman (1921–1968) was a Finnish designer of ceramics.
