Iittala Alvar Aalto 160mm Clear Vase - B0000C8THW
  • When Finnish design legend Alvar Aalto first showed this deliriously wavy vase at the World's Fair in 1937, its sinuous lines and shape caused an instant sensation

  • Today, this undulating masterpiece is still a best seller at powerhouse glass manufacturer Iittala, which is featured in MoMA's collection, as is the Aalto vase itself

  • Its mysterious shape has been the subject of much speculation; some say it is based on Aalto's sketches entitled, "The Eskimo Woman's Leather Breeches." Others believe that the fluid shape might be inspired by the lines of the Finnish landscape.

  • Size 6.25h x 8.25w x 5.25"d

  • Made of Lead-Free Crystal
