Iittala has taken the classic clear Aalto vase and added just a hint of green color to it. The result is a beautiful water green color wave that is new in 2010. This unique color gives the vase a vintage look of antique glass.

This vase is even more beautiful in person than I imagined - when you look at it from the side, it looks nearly colorless, but the color comes out beautifully on the edges at the top. A wonderful addition to my Iittala collection and I will definitely be buying more items in this color in the future.
