The iittala white vase is cased with a white layer of glass inside a clear outer layer. This white Aalto vase is a modern glass vase that reveals layers of white and clear glass in stunning form with a glossy outside finish.
For 70 years, the Savoy vase, designed by Finnish architect and furniture designer Alvar Aalto, has been one of the most famous pieces of glass in history. Aalto, Finnish for "wave" created an original glass vase with wavy lines and whimsical freeform design that to many suggests the undulating profile of a Finnish lake. Aalto’s Savoy vase continues to win awards, has residency in famous museums, and is recognized and appreciated worldwide.
Note: The 8" Aalto Vase varies slightly in shape from the other sizes
You’d be hard-pressed to find a Finn or fan of Finnish design that doesn’t recognize the iittala logo, designed by Timo Sarpaneva in 1956 and inspired by his “i-line” range. The logo serves as a symbol of quality craftsmanship, timeless design, and thoughtful functionality. Many collectors ... More iittala

Best gift for an architect

I gave this beautiful, iconic vase to my friend for his 85 th birthday and not only did itremind him that he WAS STILL an architect but he was literally in tears from the beauty and design of this vase. The lines, the shape of a frozen lake are stunning.

Iittala Aalto vases - a gift for any occasion
March 2, 2017
Aalto vases in every size and color are incredibly beautiful and versatile. Whether you place one stem or an entire bouquet in the vase, the effect is the same - stunning. We even use the smaller vases to hold mascara and make-up brushes or pens and pencils.
The Perfect Vase

This the second Aalto vase I've purchased in the past year. The first one was for me. The second one is a wedding present for two dear friends who have green thumbs and a most excellent cutting garden. IMO, there is no better vase than this one. The flowers fall so beautifully---so loose and free---makes me look like a floral genius. And the white vase doesn't show any dirty water or messy stems. Highly recommended. Thank you, Finn Style.

The 4-3/4" vase is the perfect size that's not too big nor too small and the white is extremely versatile for use with any color flowers. The different colored vases are beautiful as well, but I prefer the stems of my arrangement to be hidden and this opaque white does that.
Great art piece

I love Alvar Aalto vases. They are not only beautiful flower vases but also great art pieces. This medium size (4-3/4") is wonderful. I can put 20 stems of small sized tulips perfectly. The white color is beautiful. Highly recommended.
