This bowl is an iconic piece of Finnish Mid-Century Modern design. The pen and ink mushrooms are the work of Esteri Tomula, a designer who worked at the Arabia ceramics factory in Helsinki from 1947-1984. This bowl is enameled steel, from the 1960s, and it’s not unusual to see them priced anywhere from $50 to $120, as they’re highly sought after. This was a housewarming gift from my mother, who I guarantee found it at a yard sale and snatched it up for $5 or less. Mom was a magnificent bargain hunter with excellent taste!
