  • Q & A
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. In 1936, Aalto anonymously entered his vase design for a competition at the Paris World’s Fair and it captured the admiration of design lovers ever since. Fluid in form, the famous shape is mouth-blown in Finland making each a unique piece of glass art. Fill with flowers, candies, or display empty; Aalto wanted the end user to decide the object's purpose.

Aalto’s Savoy vase continues to win awards, has residency in famous museums, and is recognized and appreciated worldwide. Each Aalto vase is still crafted by its original mouth-blown process by Finland’s most skilled glassblowers at iittala.

Interesting shape! Does not block conversation and views at the dinner table because it is not so high. Perfect!

Always a classic.
You don't have to arrange flowers with this vase. You just throw them in and they always look fabulous. The vase is designed to do all the work and it somehow does.

Good quality
I often use these size Aalto vases (3-3/4") as decoration containers during the holiday season. Clear one is the best to decorate small christmas ball ornaments.

Love it!
I've wanted this for a long time.The vase is a wonderful addition to my Iittala collection, which includes Toikka birds, candlesticks, another vase, highball and lowball glasses and several serving pieces. My grandmother's maiden name was Aalto (not related).

a piece of art
120mm is quite small (not the smallest), but this size looks better than the taller ones on the table.
Beautifully made, I love to look at it with/without flowers in it.

standard size
I purchased three different sizes and probably this one is the most standard I can use often. I like the design and just having them displayed even without flowers looks great!

August 4, 2014
Which size and color of the Aalto vase is the 1930's original? Which is the most popular usable size? Thank you, Margo
1 Answer
Thank you for writing. That's almost a trick question because there was not one original color for the Aalto vase. Glassblowers used whatever colors were available in the factory when they produced the first Aalto vases. The factory was primarily producing bottles and jars at that time in green, brown, green-tinted clear and other colors. Iittala’s historian says the first vases were produced in 5 colors. Aalto’s original sketches for the vase also had many size variations. I believe that some of the first vases were 140 mm (5-1/2 inches) but there were other sizes produced around the same time. Currently, the most popular size used is the 6 1/2" Vases.
