2 Rosenthal Studio-Linie pieces Tapio Wirkkala (?) and ?
« on: May 04, 2010, 10:00:31 AM »
Two Rosenthal Studio-Linie pieces:

1. Vase, frosted on the outside, etchmarked "Rosenthal Studio-Linie"  . My first hunch was Tapio Wirkkala and I found a ceramic vase also by Rosenthal that is very similar and attributed to Wirkkala at http://www.deconet.com/decopedia/object/95763/Vase_by_Tapio_Wirkkala . Glass vase however slightly smaller at 18 cm. Can anyone tell me more about name of range and/or date ?

2. Clear glass slanted object. Etchmarked "Rosenthal Studio-Linie" Height: 6 cm.  :huh:

Technically no, since Rosenthal is German, whoever designed for them.
