Help please I am trying to name a Tauno Wirkkala bowl
« on: March 03, 2009, 04:16:45 PM »
Hi, I am trying to find a name for this bowl. It is Humppila and is signed by Tauno Wirkkala. I can only find one on the internet and it is in a foreign language. Any ideas? Thanks, Sue

i don´t really know, but would deduce from this site, that the name is Tokka 60403...  :huh:

it´s a good source to look up scandinavian pieces; their server seems to be frozen sometimes though  ;D
