Charming hand-thrown mug with hungry fish motif. I've pretty much convinced myself that the first line of the hand inscribed mark reads "ARabia" with the tops of each lower-case "a" left open. Am I crazy? Has anyone ever seen this before?

I don't think it says Arabia. Not entirely sure it says Finland.

Ha, I know... and my shaky grasp on "Arabia" totally depends on the second line saying Finland. Um...

Maybe there's a potter named Apuliu Finlap? Laughter

Assuming you bought it locally, rather than in Europe, I'm wondering if it's an Inuit potter.

I found it in Minnesota. My area has a particularly large population that descends from Scandinavian immigrants. It's not unusual to find Scandi pottery and/or glass at every thrift shop and garage sale, which may be why I so easily read "Finland".

You know, I've seen so many cryptic marks and terrible handwriting that I'm convinced that some ARE messing with our heads.
