This is a rare pan with lid designed by seppo mallat for arabia finland. In near mint unused condition and is close to a museum piece this is the large size pan. The design of this pan is attributed to seppo mallat. The strong design feature of these pans is that the handles of lid and sides are the same. The color is a beautiful white. Made from enameled metal with only the bottom having received a different (black) coating.

This pan measures: 12" wide including handles, 8 1/4" wide on the inside of the pot, and 5 tall with lid on (not including the handle sticking up). I'm happy to send more photos if needed. Wärtsilä's subsidiary arabia assigned well known designers like kaj franck to make practical and durable housewares. For example the bowls under the finel brand all are said to be by kaj franck and even won him a design award in milan. Other arabia shape designers for finel were seppo mallat, antti nurmesniem and heikki orvola.

They were perfect examples of scandinavian modernism with simple lines, pleasant shapes and colors. The quality was high with a strong enamel cover over cast metal shapes. At first most finel items were executed in monochrome yet vivid colors. Later on arabia illustrators raija uosikkinen and esteri tomula designed strong patterns for the enameled products, like ritari (knight), punahilkka (red riding hood), vegeta and neptun.
