This timeless set includes the two smaller sizes of Aalto's world-renowned design. The Aalto Vase has been making ‘waves’ since its introduction in 1937 and continues to be recognized for its innovative, modern design. Made from lead-free, mouth-blown glass, each one-of-a-kind creation is still handcrafted in Finland and carries "ALVAR AALTO IITTALA" on the bottom to ensure authenticity. Beautifully boxed, this is a great gift for the holidays or weddings but is equally worthy of a spot in your own collection. Though they act as glass art sculpture left empty, they can be filled with flowers, nuts, utensils and more; Aalto wanted the end user to decide the design's purpose.
Smaller vase measures: 3-3/4" L x 4-1/2" W x 4" D (9.5 x 11.5 x 10 cm)
Larger vase measures: 4-3/4" L x 6" W x 5" D (12 x 15 x 12.5 cm)

These two vases are smaller than the "original" Aalto, just so you know! They look fantastic and of quality we know and love Iittala for. The design is timeless and although they aren't the large Aalto vase, they still look amazing for lower flower arrangements, or for floating candles.
Great for easing expat Finns' homesickness, or a present for the design conscious!

I wanted the larger case to replace one I'd broken. I was very pleased to get both for the price of one. Promptly and safely delivered, as always.

Great value for a set of classics!

Ok but not as useful as the larger vases.

This is a nice set but it is not as usable as the larger vases. Also, one of my vases had a very noticeable seam/streak running down the entire side, which made the vase look a bit cheap. Unless you are adding on to your collection, invest in the larger vase first.
