The Orkidea vase was one of my first Finnish pieces. I found it in a thrift shop twenty five years ago. I had one of the stacking bottles for many years as well and sold it because I had not been able to get a mate for it. A few weeks later I was at a market and picked up this pair. Perhaps there is a message here?
Pinottava means 'stacking' in Finnish.
The Orkidea vase is a sculptural design by Timo Sarpaneva that won the Grand Prix at the 1954 Milan Triennale and was voted the "Most Beautiful Object of the Year" by House Beautiful magazine in the same year.
