Marimekko Oiva Ilves Cup 2.5dl Green/Dark Blue
Beautiful cup in Oiva crockery with the "Ilves" pattern.
Ilves means lynx in Finnish, and the pattern shows two young lynx frolicking in the twilight. Perhaps the two are almost adult siblings? These large felines from the Nordic forests with their spotted fur and furry ears are imprisoned creatures, something to the illustration Aino-Maija Metsola captures perfectly.
