Tapio Wirkkala kantarelli/mushroom? not signed?
« on: October 10, 2012, 10:27:26 AM »
Hi, here is a link to apicture of something i think is the Tapio Kantarelli vase/bowl, but it has no signature according to the seller.

Were they not all signed?

I don't know, but there's one here listed as "Tapio Wirkkala Kantarelli Iittala 1946"

Maybe earlier ones weren't signed?
