Iittal-yeah or Iittal-nah? Any thought's on this vase?
« on: June 25, 2018, 03:32:34 AM »
Hello everyone

I have recently acquired this vase in a lot with mostly Finnish Iittala/Humppila glass, but I'm not sure if it is either.  There are no sticker or markings.  The date and series is a mystery, but it looks very Iittala-esque.  6.5"tall by 6" wide by 3"deep.

Thanks in advance

Cant quite be sure from the photos but check out IITTALA 2784 Pinus vase.
If it is correct its a Tapio Wirkkala design from 1972.
IITTALA glass is a good collecting field.
Good luck,
Tim

Hello and welcome!
I am no Iittala ex-spurt, and I don't know what lighting and photography conditions you have there, but the colour of the glass looks (to me) to be far too yellow for Iittala.
It's normally a really clear sort of clear - no blues greens or yellows in it.
I also get my textures mixed up, but does this not look like an Ingridglas texture?- one often confused for being wfs.
I can't see it (the texture) terribly well from the pics, but the clear glass colour from Ingridglas isn't quite as absolutely, utterly clear as Iittala is.
Cheers, Sue (M)
