A shape constantly interpreted, the Alvar Aalto collection of vases stays true to the original design concept. More than 70 years after the original debut, the design continues to provoke attention by letting the owner decide its use and complementing the manufacturer's busy lives with a touch of nature. Filled with fresh cut flowers or arranged with other collection pieces as works of art, this eternal classic is essential to the modern home. The Aalto glass pieces have a multi-stage production. The non-leaded crystal is first mouth blown before going into a wooden mold to create the classic Aalto shape. The pieces are then hand cut and go through several polishing and finishing steps before they are completed, creating a piece worthy of permanent display at the Museum of Modern Art. In addition to the standard Aalto colors, each year iittala selects two new glass colors to run in limited production.
- Mouth blown non-leaded crystal
- Designer's signature on the bottom
- Hand wash only
