The groundbreaking raised droplet design of Kastehelmi came from legendary designer Oiva Toikka’s search to find a way to hide joint marks in glass. Kastehelmi (“dewdrop” in Finnish) features glass bubbles that resemble strings of dewdrops glistening under the morning sun. The beloved Kastehelmi collection offers a wide range of playful pieces that are both functional and decorative. Each distinct yet versatile piece plays with light, bringing out the reflective beauty of the glass. The delicate yet durable Kastehelmi plate is perfect for serving small bites like appetizers, tapas or desserts. Clear glass complements the clean, simple design. Collect a set. Dishwasher safe. Great wedding or housewarming gift.

I have had these plates for many years, and recently 2 broke, so I was happy to be able to order replacements.
This was a gift for my brother & sister in law. He & I are Finn’s thru my Mom & I have some iittala. Just flew home from a Viking river cruise & we were thrilled that the salad plate was used in their dining room. It was a beautiful touch with their white China & table linens.
