To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Finnish independence, iittala has created a special collection of designs in ultramarine blue. The hue was born from a special glass recipe at iittala's glass factory in Finland and pays tribute to the clarity and true warmth of the Finnish national character. It's especially stunning on Oiva Toikka's Kastehelmi (Dewdrop) design, named after the bubbled detailing on the pressed glass. Combine this salad plate with other iittala lines like Teema, Taika and Kartio for special settings or everyday dining; it is conveniently dishwasher safe with care.
First founded as a glassworks company in 1881, iittala is now a leading company in modern Finnish design producing a range of dinnerware, glassware and art pieces. You’d be hard-pressed to find a Finn or fan of Finnish design that doesn’t recognize the iittala logo, designed by Timo Sarpane... More iittala

These plates are a work of art and will make a beautiful addition to our table.

Arrived quickly and in great shape. The knobbed feel and slightly translucent lovely blue make this plate just right for a relaxing good morning breakfast or an afternoon snack with friends in the garden. Sandwiches fit perfectly. I'll buy more.
Beautiful. Nicely weighted.
A little small for a lettuce, tomato, etc. salad. Just right for a tuna salad, fruit salad, etc.
Ultramarine, Ultra Cool!

Collectors of iittala's Kastehelmi glassware should pick up some of these plates while they are still available in this limited-edition color to mark Finland's 100th anniversary.
Excellent quality. Great color. Made in Finland.
LOVE the "Finnish" Blue
