Legendary shape. Alvar Aalto created the Aalto vase in various shapes, sizes and colors for Iittala and the World Fair in Paris in 1937. Supposedly, it is based on sketches made with the intriguing pseudonym "The Eskimo Woman’s Leather Breeches", but Alvar Aalto was the son of a cartographer - perhaps the shapes are derived from the Finnish landscape and lakes.

The Aalto vase has become one of the world’s most famous glass objects, deservedly synonymous with Finnish glass art and with Iittala. It is exhibited in some of the world’s most important design museums.

Mouth-blown glass.

Size: H 16 cm.
