    Another trip to a Vinnies that normally provides nothing ... I saw a familiar shape among some knick-knacks on a shelf. The colours were more subdued to the vase that I already had found a few years before. I used the loupe and saw the signature and I headed for the cashier.

    This was well over a year ago now and recently I took it out of 'the shed' and took some pictures of it and the other neodymium 3539 vase by Tapio Wirkkala. Neodymium glass changes from the pink to blue in fluorescent light.

    Both are signed on the bottom TAPIO WIRKKALA 3539.

    I believe there are three shapes with this numeration.

    Cobaltcobold has the other version of this vase on CW here:

    I like the combo of pink and blue and have put them with another vase by John Uithol that I posted recently.

    It stands 16cm/6.8" tall.

    This glass is called Neosin and appeared in the Iittala catalogue between 1966-69. I believe 'Neosin' is a derivative of the chemical agent Neodymium whose compounds were first commercially used as glass dyes in 1927. The color of neodymium compounds—due to the Nd(III) ion is often a reddish-purple but it changes with the type of lighting. As mentioned above this unique graduated colour changes in certain lights and no two pieces will be identical.

      Fantastic shape with these. Wirkkala was a master designer. I love neo glass at any time but with the pink they just are awesome.
      They look delicate near the earthy Uithol.

      I know you said they normally have nothing, but, boy, when they do, your Vinnies sure give up the goods! This is fantastic! Our SVdP stores have nothing like this...ever.

      I came looking for the three (or four) blue vases you posted with the Dutch bird, apologies, I forgot the name already...but you have so many fabulous items and your taste is just, impeccable! I love your 'stuff'. You know I call it that because I'm green with envy!!! Just kidding. It's just for lack of a better word at the moment!!! Did you post those other blue vases? Would love to know about them too.
    33. vetraio50 vetraio50, 4 years ago
      Many thanks SHAREURPASSION.

      THey are Holmegaard by Per Lutken, the blue is called Safir and the form is Drop or Dråb vase.

      RENE there are two that I have. I think both are signed Nuutajarvi and the number from memory. They are both in storage at the moment.
