Alvor Aalto´s Savoy vase produced by iittala is one of the most famous vases in history. Designed in 1936 for a competition at the Paris Worlds Fair, Finnish architect and furniture designer Alvar Aalto anonymously entered and won the competition for his vase under the pseudonym Eskimo woman's leather breeches.
Aalto, Finnish for wave, created a glass vase with wavy lines and whimsical freeform design that continues to win awards, has residency in famous museums, and is sought-after worldwide.
Every Aalto vase is still crafted by its original mouth-blown process by Finlands most skilled glassblowers at iittala. Made of lead-free crystal glass and carries "ALVAR AALTO" on bottom for authenticity.
