This is such a clever little tea kettle designed by Kaj Franck (shape) and Esteri Tomula (pattern/decoration) for Arabia, echoing the traditional round bellied style of a Japanese teapot and all the charm of bright 1950s1960s enamel. I do have some of their ceramics including a Esteri Tomula vase and plate found in the days before prices rocketed. The shape is so inviting, it makes me want to warm my hands around it!
I dream of finding a coffee pot like this at on my vintage shopping trips, a coffee pot designed by Antti Nurmesniemi. You can see how the shape relates to the finished paper piecing pattern. I love the clean lines, the easy to hold handle, the lack of fussiness, a great bit of classic design.
