Estate Score! Arabia & Rorstrand & Kartell

Didn't feel like thrifting today but managed to drag myself to 'em before lunch. And good thing, I went 'cause it looks like things are picking up at thrift stores. At the very top you'll see a set (one bowl chipped) of Arabia Finland "Ruija" designed by Ulla Procope, 1977-81. Thought these might match my Anemone set at home but turns out these have a slight brown tint in the body glaze. The days of the biddies not knowing what Arabia is have been gone for a year or two-damn the internet. In other words, Scandi stuff is no longer cheap! Mugs are SOLD.

At the same thrift (a Scandi must have donated all their household items) found 10 Rorstrand Sweden cups and saucers (one's chipped) If you know the designer let me know. The line drawings of petite flowers are darling. A Hoganas Sweden jar (might be missing its cork lid) and a Swedish table runner. SOLD

And there is still more; a bright yellow Kartell bin/planter I believe to be designed by Gino Colombini, another corked jar(these suckers love me) Pair of Couroc mushroom glasses SOLD, a little flower tin SOLD and a white owl incense burner SOLD. Passed on a set of Dansk Bistro tea cups designed by NR and two faux Boda snowballs though it was very hard.
