Pertti Kallioinen Metsa (forest) Bowls Pertti Kallioinen Metsa Bowls designed for Lasisepat Mantsala of Finland in the 1970s.
Rare set of 6 bowls in excellent condition and a great example of Mid-Century Glassware..
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.
Size: 90mm wide at base and 180mm wide at top x 80mm tall
Weight: ~3.5kg 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 ‘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.
