Just spotted your eggcup in Iittala: 125 Years of Finnish Glass.

It was designed in 1978 and produced 1979 - 1987. Apparently 'Tiu' means 'Score' - not entirely sure what that has to do with birds or eating eggs really.  :huh:

There's no mention of Vennola working for any other glassworks besides Iittala in his artist bio, so I suspect it's just chance that they're quite similar.

Hi there,
those BIRDS are napkin holders/rings.
If I'll find Ad from 70S BELLE magazine I'll post it.
Cheers.
