    A Jorma Vennola, Iittala block/paperweight called 'Saunanaiset' or 'Sauna Ladies'. Introduced in 1978 and produced for a few years. It is not signed but bears an i-series sticker fortunately. I found it in an op shop here in Sydney two days ago.

    The three nude wonen are in a sauna room .... the lady who sold it was a bit taken aback by the nudity. The nipples are highly defined.

    Jorma Vennola was born in Helsinki in 1943 in Helsinki. He began his career in the USA as a toy designer but has worked mainly as an industrial designer of farm equipment. For Iittala he designed a few of these paperweights.

    Length: 13cm (5”)
    Height: 8cm (3.2”)
    Width: 3cm (1.2”)
    Weight: 650g

      What a terrific piece! I like your grouping in the last shot with that huge Vallien vase but your WB hedgehog got a little lost in its shadow. : )

      Is the blue vase Harrachov? The color looked right but I didn't remember seeing that 'crown' formation at the top of any of the vases I've come across.
    12. vetraio50 vetraio50, 5 years ago
      Many thanks SWFINLUV !!!!!

      I believe the blue one is indeed Milan Metelak for Harrachov. I have seen a couple of versions of the hot worked crowns. I still haven't posted it on CW. I really don't know why ..... it's a personal favorite.

      The Bosse hedgehog is very dark ... it's an original .... the pagination made it blend in that photo ... I must admit I was a bit disappointed.
    13. vetraio50 vetraio50, 5 years ago
      Check out this photo of the Harrachov vases ....
