Mid Century Scandinavian signature?? ID = Nuutajärvi
« on: September 16, 2017, 05:04:11 PM »
Good day one and all from Toronto!
       Brought this striking vase back from a Florida estate sale, the signature has me baffled.  Any input greatly appreciated. 
Just over 6" high, 6 1/2" diameter at the mouth, and a substantial 2 1/2 kilos

The third word is Notsjo which is the Swedish name for Nuutajarvi.
The vase has a number, KF 260 and was produced until the end of the sixties.
Nice find.
