Meet the 2019 Annual Egg by Oiva Toikka: Vuono. In Finnish, the name means fjord: a deep, narrow, and long sea or lake drain surrounded by steep land. Fittingly, marine blue hues can be found in the metallic stripes that swirl like waves from the top of the egg to the bottom. The rest of the mouth-blown is a beautiful indigo color, which may feel blue, grey, or violet to you depending on your mood and perspective. Only in the product selection for 2019, each handcrafted iittala Toikka Vuono 2019 Annual Bird carries the signature “O. Toikka IITTALA 2019” to ensure authenticity. Like all Toikka birds, the variation in craftsmanship makes each one even more unique, so yours may not look just like the one pictured.
Number x/750 and signed "O. Toikka IITTALA 2019" on base
