Bowl by Iittala, Finland?

Hi Anne,

The measurements are way off :cry:  sorry. That doesn't mean it isn't Iittala, just probably not Tapio Wirkkala.

The dish in the link Frank gave is in the book.
Enjoying being in the Midlands.......some people are just amazing....

OK just to sling another idea into the mix - Anne I've seen in a book (can't find it now though unfortunately) a beautiful bowl - very similar but not exactly the same as yours - which was designed by Tauno Wirkkala - the brother of Tapio - for Humppila (Finland).  Pip.

You can chuck as many ideas in as you wish Pip, I'm very grateful :lol:

I've never heard of Tauno Wirkkala - and I hadn't thought about Humppila as a possibility - so thanks for that.  

Cripes - the plot thickens :lol: These Scandinavians :roll:   I'll do a search on Tauno W. and Humppila and see what comes up.

Just this sec. spotted it, and another Humppila bowl which bears some similarities....

 :lol:  Beaten to it by Frank  :P

This one looks more like mine.

Both are far more exciting than my restrained version.  Mine doesn't have the same flamboyant uneven edge.
