Pertti Kallioinen Forest (Metsa) pattern Glass Ware was made by Lasisepat Mantsala of Finland in the 1970s.
A fantastic piece of Mid-Century Glassware.
This large fruit/salad/bread shallow bowl is in very good condition.
As with other patterns from this designer, the bowls are very tactile with the pattern on the outside.
I believe this pattern was made by blowing the glass into a wooden mold.
Size: 34cm in diameter x 7cm tall
Weight: 1.7 kg
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 ‘Cow Parsley’ 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.
