This is a vintage plate from Kastehelmi, Finland's leading glassware brand. Kastehelmi, which means "dew" or "drop" in Finnish, was designed in 1964 by Oiva Toikka, the king of glass artists. The distinctive feature of vintage plates is that the beads on the surface are plump and three-dimensional, and each bead is finely detailed. They are as beautiful as pearls. The reprinted version has small, flat beads, which lacks depth when held up to light.

The manufacturer was originally Nuutajärvi, the oldest glass factory in Finland, which later became a joint venture with ARABIA, and the current reproductions are produced under the Iittala umbrella. These are old works, and the unique transparency of vintage pieces is no longer available.

Oiva Toikka

Oiva Toikka ( 1931-2019)

One of Finland's great glass designers. His imaginative, tasteful and bold glass art distances himself from the mainstream of Scandinavian design. Toikka's artistic activities extend beyond glass to include stage production, fashion design, and plastic interior design. He has received numerous prestigious awards, including the Kai Frank Design Award and the Prince Eugene Medal, and was awarded the title of Honorary Professor of Art by Finland in 1993. The series ``Bird by Toikka'' designed for Iittala is a combination of Toikka's expertise in the properties of glass and the artist's imagination. The unique and colorful birds are all handmade by glass artisans and attract collectors from all over the world.
