The Collector’s market here on July 1 had only two items that really interested me. This was one of them. I just love the turned lip and those bubbles/blister! It was designed by Kaj Franck for the Nuutajärvi Notsjö factory in 1966 and was in production until 1980. It was produced in green, clear, rosé, brown or green ‘rakkolasia' or 'blister glass' . Sargasso was a range that included glass vases, bowls, jugs, bottles, baskets and a mug. It is signed Nuutajärvi in script on the deeply ground pontil.
This vase is 11 cm high.
It still retains the Arabia sticker.
"Finnish Nuutajärvi was established in 1793, ... Kaj Franck was appointed chief designer for Nuutajärvi in 1950 as part of his duties at Arabia, Nuutajärvi and Arabia were both owned by the industrial concern Wärtsilä."
