About the Designer
Aino Aalto Aino Aalto Finland (1894 - 1949)

It seems no coincidence that Aalto means wave in Finnish. Aino Aalto (1894-1949) also caused waves with her glassware collection that beat her husband's entry in an iittala-Karhula design competition in Finland and went on to win the gold prize at the Milan Triennale in 1936. In the 1930's there were a lot of cheerfully useless objects floating around. Dinner services were vast and ornate, and kept in cupboards most of the year. Aino Aalto's radically simple design seemed as if it had arrived from the future. Not only did she use glass, but she also cleverly maximized the advantages of pressed-glass mass production techniques to create decoration out of the form and the material. An eloquent thought that explained how a more human and harmonious form of mass production could make design masterpieces available for everyone. In addition to the standard Aino Aalto colors, each year iittala chooses two additional colors for limited production, allowing for added accent pieces and combinability.

Appreciate this site

 from OR– Verified Buyer

I appreciate that this site sells this brand. It really isn't easy to find Finnish glass and I already have a few iittala items. This isn't the exact pitcher I wanted, but it's very good and I was glad to find it here. It arrived reasonably quickly and in perfect condition.
