M means snapped up, not stuck up. Glen explains it here under hand finishing https://www.carnivalglassworldwide.com/handmade-glass.html and it does seem more common on hand made US glass than on European glass of a similar period (pre-automation)

thanks :)            I notice that the link includes both the 'snapped up' and 'stuck up' expressions.      Since a plate wouldn't have a collar base for the 'snap' to grip, then is it possible m was correct with 'stuck up' - which requires a dab of plastic glass on the end of the pontil rod with which to hold something plate shaped?? ;D

Thanks again for all the input, it has been most interesting.  Ah the importance of punctuation, there should be a comma between Iittala and palm. I have another couple of leads to follow from some old contacts in Holland and will let you know if I am able to shed any further light. Thanks Patrick

I think the plate does have a collar base...

Hi excuse the ignorance but what is a collar base?

Ok yes thanks, it has a drop of approx 1.5 from top of the rim to the bottom of the base.

On the face of it, you'd imagine there to be insufficient 'collar' for the wire to grip - too much likelihood of the plate falling off - but Christine is a lot more knowledgeable about glassy matters than me - so I will defer to Christine's suggestion.
Of course, suppose you might argue that even had a pontil rod been used for the 'stuck up' method, then evidence of such might have been ground away without leaving any sign of its use.

Does the figure of 1.5 refer to centimetres or inches?? ;D

That's a better picture; no there's not enough to grip. It was probably neither stuck nor snapped.
