Hello

I don't know who designed that plate but seeing that label I would say
that it isn't any "big" make in Finland like Iittala, Humppila etc.
It's probably some small glass company, if you can say it like that.
Hopefully you will find out at some point who designed that.

Thanks to everyone for your input and extra thanks to Ivo, for the email address.  ;D ;D
I have just received an email from Humppila/Iittala:

Hello,
The plate you have is in fact produced in Humppila glassfactory. It belongs to a serie called Suomi (Finland), there were several plates, bowls, glassess and a jug. Designer is Pertti Santalahti and the serie was in production 1976-79.
Regards
Anu Santalahti
If I know, I'll comment. If I think I know, I'll have a go. If I have no idea, I'll just keep quiet and learn from others, so the next time I'll know.

Gosh - it's so very different from my Humppila Pertti Santalahti plate I would never have put the two plates together and thought they were by the same designer.
