Title: nuutajarvi vase, any ideas on designer & age??
Post by: jonchellycain on August 10, 2009, 07:20:55 PM
Hi there
does anybody have any ideas who may have designed/made this Nuutajarvi vase?? or have an idea on when it would have been made.
It has a silver foil sticker with a blue fish shape with silver writting NUUTAJARVI 1792  WARTSILA FINLAND
The vase stands at 17.5cms tall thin clear glass  with a thicker base which has a bubbled dark coffee brown effect around the bulbous base (on the internal wall)
many thanks
michelle

Just to add I gather the blue fish logo was used between 1977 through to around 93. Although as Michael's link shows production of this design ended in 87.

One more addition: "Kanerva" is a series of 5 different vases and a plate.
The bubbles were created with a metal powder. (some kind of thermographic one Weckström was familiar with having been a sculptor too)
