Timo Sarpaneva Bird bottle Question !
« on: May 20, 2014, 12:32:20 PM »
Hi ,
I have this Timo Sarpaneva bird bottle in purple which is not signed like others I have seen on line , The design shape is 2501 from i-glass Iittala yet mine is signed TIMO SARPANEVA IITTALA S'461 .

I've also found them simply signed "TS"  , "T.Sarpaneva 2501" and also "Timo Sarpaneva Iittala -57"

There looks to be quite a difference in price between different sites and I was wondering if the way it is signed has any relevance to it's age or value , Many thanks for any help , Dave.

Sorry for the use of the "value" word here as this wasn't what I was looking for.
Were these made by many people in Iittala as a design by Timo , hence the different markings or were they all made by Timo himself ?
Thanks again , Dave.
