This little sommerso vase was an ebay purchase a couple of years ago. It is signed on the bottom in full "TAPIO WIRKKALA 3304". I enjoy his play on ovoid shapes. It seems it was made in a couple of shades of green/grey. This is the darker version. It is H 3 inches, ( 7.5 cm) upper Ø 3.1 inches.
Wirkkala's work for Iittala was prolific. This one it seems dates to the 1950's?
