Hi all,

Does anyone know who made this plate, please?



Click to enlarge.

It has a tiny clear label with "Handmade in Finland" written on it, in blue.

TIA  ;D

Hi Della,
I cannot explain why exactly, but I know Nuutajarvi Njotso did stuff very much in this style, by Oiva Toikka.
Not saying this is, but there may be a book specifically on that factory's plates that may help.
Regards,
Marcus

Hi Marcus,  :D

I do have books with Oiva Toikka designs in, and the first thing that I did was look through his items, but I can only find Kastelhelmi, Flora, Fauna & Pioni on the net and his year plates and cubes (and birds, of course) in my books. I have googled his wares until I am blue in the face, but not having any joy, as yet. I was hoping that Robbo might happen along and hopefully shed a little light on it for me  ;D

Hi Della,

The pattern may be known as "Paratiisi", Paradise or Eden in Finnish if that helps, and I can find some references to such a plate, as yet no maker.

Any chance of an enlarged label image, please?

Regards,
Marcus

Birger Kaipiainen (1915-1988) designed the pottery tableware "Paradise" for Arabia in the 40's, but on the whole, he designed unique pieces. "Paratiisi" is a design by Iittala, but it is pottery and has just fruits on it.
I will go and look for Eden now, as I just noticed that in your post.
Thanks Marcus  :-*

The only "handmade in Finland" sticker I have is on a cast plate from Humppila, maybe you can ask them they're at shop dot humppila at iittala dot com

I have also had that label on items made by Espoon Taidelasi (glass firm in Espoo, Helsinki). Perhaps it's a generic thing?

Hi Della,
I didn't post earlier because I didn't really have much to say ;D Apart from it's a very nice plate!
It's not in "Oiva Toikka: Glass". Another Nuutajärvi designer stylistically could be Kerttu Nurminen. However, I've never seen this design before. And I don't recall seeing a Nuutajärvi piece with this label.

As Ivo says, Humppila did cast textured plates. I've also seen cast suncatchers from Meri Lasi, but IMHO Meri's designs aren't a patch on your plate.

I'd be interested to see a label close-up  ;)

Yes, Ivo and Robbo are right - I've had one designed by Pertti Santalahti for Humppila but it was very different to yours which is why I'd not posted about it.  My Humppila plate was like a textured bark effect to the underside (smooth to the top surface) and with an amber centre - it's another name to look at anyway even if just to eradicate from the possibles.

Wow, thanks, everyone, Ivo  :-* Glen, Robbo & Pip  ;D  :hug: Certainly a few things for me to look for.

For Robbo, here is the label:



It is a little blurred, sorry  :-[ I have just returned from taking no. 3 son out for a celebratory meal (he can now follow the orientation year for the Dutch army, having passed all of their very stringent tests) and I just had to have a couple of red wines  ::) ;)
