  • 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.

  • ITEM #: II-AA000444

First founded as a glassworks company in 1881, iittala is now a leading company in modern Finnish design producing a range of dinnerware, glassware and art pieces. You’d be hard-pressed to find a Finn or fan of Finnish design that doesn’t recognize the iittala logo, designed by Timo Sarpane... More iittala

Simply beautiful, classic vase. Love the smaller size. Looks great empty as a sculptural piece, or with a flower arrangement.

Iittala Aalto 3 3/4” Vase
December 19, 2019
I would not recommend this vase because on this size of the Aalto vase there are three seams where the vase juts out. I have different sizes in this vase and they do not have the seams and are gorgeous. Finnstyle customer service was fantastic as always however. I was able to return the vase without issues.

The Aalto vase in a mini size! I bought this for my bathroom. It is the perfect size. Great for a small space. And, the iconic design, which I love

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.

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.

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).

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!

Is the 6 1/4 the very largest one in this shape?

For the shorter, wider vases - this is the largest.

We do have the clear Aalto vase in a taller option here:

from San Francisco, CA asked:
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.
