Humppila Glass Finland in the pattern of a Sunflower designed by Kai Blomqvist in 1970s.
A fantastic piece of Mid-Century Glassware.
This plate is very tactile with the pattern on the outside. The tips of the petals are turned up, but it is not quite a bowl, maybe a dish?
Size: 265mm diameter x 40mm tall x 30mm deep
