Thrift - Arabia Anemone

Went to my thrifts today. From my old biddy store, little "Anemone" cup by Arabia of Finland designed in 1960 by Ulla Procope and handpainted by AR, I have yet to find out who the initials stand for? A lot of skill was required to paint the single tone blue. Photographs simple do not do the painting justice. While I originally thought that the cup might be missing a saucer it might be a stand alone mug? Confirmed by a Finn that there is a saucer to the cup.

At my fave thrift found tins from Belgium and England. And a diet scale from 1979 for my collection. Brightly colored Ulster linen tea towel "12 Days of Christmas" made in Ireland and never used. Sold.
