This is a vintage cake plate from Kastehelmi, the leading Finnish glassware company. The blue color is still being reproduced today under the name Sea Blue, but there is a clear difference in the color tone, and the vintage version has a unique vividness and depth to the blue.

The series name Kastehelmi means "dew" or "dewdrop" in Finnish. Kastehelmi was designed in 1964 by Oiva Toikka, who is considered the "king" of glass artists.

The vintage plates are characterized by their plump, three-dimensional surface and the fine grain of each grain. They are as beautiful as pearls.

The uneven design of the glass

It is flat, small, and lacks depth when held up to light. Also, this 14cm plate has not been reproduced, so

This is something that can only be found as a vintage item.

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. This product is an old piece, and the unique transparency of vintage pieces is no longer available.

Oiva Toikka

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.
