Cow Parsley Sweet Set designed by Pertti Kallioinen for Lasisepat Mantsala of Finland in the 1970s.
A fantastic piece of Mid-Century Glassware.
Set of 4 sweet bowls and 1 large bowl in excellent condition with only light wear on the gold edge of the large bowl.
As with other patterns from this designer, the bowls are very tactile with the pattern on the outside.
I believe these bowls were made by blowing the glass into a wooden mould.
Large Size: 23cm diameter x 9cm tall
Small Size: 13cm diameter x 5cm tall
Weight: ~2.5kg total
Lasisepat Mantsala are one of the lesser known Finnish glassmakers and I believe the factory was operating from 1978-2003.
Pertti Kallioinen is also known for his ‘Metsa’ (forest) range also made for Lasisepat Mantsala.
He also designed for Riihimaki Glassworks Finland who operated from 1910-1990 and Muurla Glassworks Finland who are still operating today.
