This bowl has been in the family from the 1970s, when my father got it as a Chtistmas present from some patient...
I have to confess I found out who the designer was, but didn't keep the data properly and I have to start looking for it.
I am pretty sure it is from Humppila and it's not from Pertti Santalahti...
I hope someone can help!

Ok, mistery solved!!! I also asked for identification on this item at the Finnish glass lovers group at FB... and got an answer within 10 minutes!
The bowl was designed by Kaija Aarikka fro Humppila.
According to Wikipedia:
"Helena Kaija Aarikka Ruokonen (born February 3, 19xx -I am a gentleman-) is a Finnish designer and entrepreneur. Established in 1954 Aarikka Ltd's artistic director since 1954 worked to combine Aarikka, designed by jewelery, toys and household use and ornamental objects play of the mind and a strong sense of the shape of the tree skillful and versatile use."
By the way, "Heiniä kainalossa" translates as "hay under his arm"... it sounds pretty poetic! In any case the bowl looks like a bundle of hay!!
