Even though I'm far from an expert on artillery pieces, I believe that this piece is actually from the First World War. It's design appears to be something from WWI Germany or Austria, which isn't that far fetched. As many countries modernize their militarizes, anything that no longer holds any usefulness is either scrapped or sold to other countries. In Germany's case, they were required to both disarm their military and pay the victors an insurmountable amount of money. So it wouldn't be odd for Finland to use quite a few weapons of German origin.
