Description

We have for sale this amazing, design icon, undulating, slightly flared, free-form section green glass vase by Alvar Aalto for Iittala, Finland.

It is a limited edition version (6623/8000) of the Savoy or Aalto vase, produced in 1986 to celebrate 50 years of the famous design.

It is inscribed 'A.AALTO 1936-1986 IITTALA E 6623/8000'.

This Finnish vase was used in Helsinki's luxurious Savoy restaurant, hence the name. Its beauty lies in the deep folds of the mould blown glass. One account states that Aalto, in collaboration with his wife Aino, based his design on the leather trousers worn by Inuit women; another interprets it as reminiscent of the undulating Finnish landscape, studded with lakes

It can be found in many glass and design books, due to its great design, including:

- Miller's 20th Century Glass - page 49
- DK's The definitive visual history design - page 192
- Miller's Collectables Handbook & Price Guide 2014 -2015 - page 219 - where a 1950's version of the vase is valued at £1800-£2,200.
