iittala Aalto White Vase - 6-1/4"

  • Q & A
With a surname that fittingly means "Wave" in Finnish, Alvar Aalto created these flowing lines in 1936 as an ode Finland's water-rich landscape. The following year, the design was unveiled at the Paris World Fair and the crowds were immediately taken by its effortless elegance. While the fluid form feels like such a natural occurrence, it takes 7 craftsmen, 12 work stages and 30 hours to create just one of these extraordinary vases. The iittala Aalto White Vase is unique, as it is cased with a white layer of glass inside a clear outer layer.

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.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a Finn or fan of Finnish design that doesn’t recognize the iittala logo, designed by Timo Sarpaneva in 1956 and inspired by his “i-line” range. The logo serves as a symbol of quality craftsmanship, timeless design, and thoughtful functionality. Many collectors ... More iittala

Much loved and sent to a wedding couple
August 17, 2020
Purchased as a wedding gift for my daughter and new son-in-law, it was a very easy choice. I have the vase in deep blue that I acquired in Goteborg, Sweden over 25 years ago as a fan of Alvar Aalto. My daughter always loved it when full of yellow tulips and chose the white one for her home.
ProsClassic. Elegant. We loved the blue hydrangeas, white roses and varied greens as an option to tulips.
ConsIt can be a challenge to fill the needs 20 tulips to do so properly. Other flowers need short stems.

Ordered this as a gift for a colleague's 20th work anniversary and it did not disappoint. He added it to the other pieces in his collection and it looks absolutely stunning.

Thanks so much - you guys are great to work with. We'll definitely be ordering from you again.

As a side note - loved the tumblers we got for free with the order! Gorgeous!

Best gift for an architect
January 13, 2018

ProsCan be used as a vase of just admired as an object of art or a glass sculpture.

Iittala Aalto vases - a gift for any occasion
March 2, 2017
Aalto vases in every size and color are incredibly beautiful and versatile. Whether you place one stem or an entire bouquet in the vase, the effect is the same - stunning. We even use the smaller vases to hold mascara and make-up brushes or pens and pencils.

The Perfect Vase
October 17, 2016
This the second Aalto vase I've purchased in the past year. The first one was for me. The second one is a wedding present for two dear friends who have green thumbs and a most excellent cutting garden. IMO, there is no better vase than this one. The flowers fall so beautifully---so loose and free---makes me look like a floral genius. And the white vase doesn't show any dirty water or messy stems. Highly recommended. Thank you, Finn Style.

Timeless design
August 15, 2014
The 4-3/4" vase is the perfect size that's not too big nor too small and the white is extremely versatile for use with any color flowers. The different colored vases are beautiful as well, but I prefer the stems of my arrangement to be hidden and this opaque white does that.

Great art piece
November 6, 2013
I love Alvar Aalto vases. They are not only beautiful flower vases but also great art pieces. This medium size (4-3/4") is wonderful. I can put 20 stems of small sized tulips perfectly. The white color is beautiful. Highly recommended.
ProsThe color, size, good quality of glass
