The Secrets of Finland Pauper Coin Collector by Artek is a playful ornament that you can also use to save up for maybe the summer holiday. The Pauper is part of a collection of seven handmade ceramic objects designed by COMPANY in 2019 for Artek's FIN/JPN Friendship Collection, which celebrates the 100th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Finland and Japan. According to COMPANY, the Pauper reminds us of the long cold polar night, during which the need for human warmth and assistance is greater than ever.
The Pauper Coin Collector echoes the wooden statues decorating the doorsteps of Finnish churches, which were used to collect coins to help the poor. The naïve art style coin collector is also a unique gift.
The ceramic coin collector is hand-made in Portugal.
