Famous "rice" technique by Friedl Holzer Kjenberg c1960. 4 3/4" square at top and 4 1/2" tall. Mint.

Friedl Holzer-Kjellberg is best known for her rice-porcelain objects. Visiting the Museum of Applied Art in Vienna in the early 1930s, she was fascinated by small Chinese rice-porcelain pieces. At the Arabia factory, she began experiments to develop the necessary production methods, taking the Chinese techniques of the 18th century as her example. The first rice-porcelain tableware items began to be produced in 1942. Rice porcelain became one of the Arabia factory’s most successful articles, for which a separate department was founded, headed by Kjellberg. This type of porcelain was a speciality of the Arabia factory, having been made elsewhere in Europe only by Sèvres of France around the turn of the century. The production of rice porcelain was at its peak in the 1950s and 1960s, but was discontinued in 1974 with the merger of the Arabia and Rörstrand factories.
