This auction is for 2 pieces of

iittala glass,

made in Finland .

It is for 2 carafes, maybe for vinegar & oil,

and they are mint, never used.

They are from the 1960's and are still in the box. Included

in the box is a small booklet that describes the glass and artist.

They are 6" high (15 cm), the base is a little over 3" across.

These were designed by Tapio Wirkkala .

He was a member of the Finnish Academy and won plenty of prizes and

awards in the 1950's & 1960's including the Gold Medal awarded by the President of Italy

in Faenza 1963, 1966, 1967 and 1969.

These 2 pieces are very prettty and probably pretty rare to

be found still in the box.

Thanks for looking.
