- Curator's comments
- This dessert dish and under-dish are from the 'Saana' series, (model nos 6308 and 6108 respectively). Originally Toikka intended for this range to have a smooth finish, but as this is more difficult to achieve during manufacturing, an uneven surface was agreed upon. Images and references to this design can be found in the following publications:
