Kaj Franck for Arabia.
I just bought this bowl (well, not this bowl in particular) off etsy yesterday. It's an enamel bowl with a mushroom design designed by the great Finnish designer Kaj Franck for Arabia, Finland's oldest ceramics manufacturer, where he was the head of the model design department from 1946 to 1961. You can read more about Kaj Franck here and here. Below is a collection of Arabia ceramics and enamelware compiled by Meet Me at Mike's. And below that is a letterpress mushroom coaster from Wiley Valentine via design*sponge.
