Condition report

Wear commensurate with age.

This Savoy vase was made for a group of journalists visiting the Karhula glass factory on the occasion of its 50th anniversary.
Before the Paris Exposition of 1937, Alvar Aalto won a design competition organised by the Karhula glass factory with a sketch for a vase called "Eskimoerindens skinnbuxa". The first versions of this vase were blown from these sketches. The vases, often called "Aalto-vases" or "Paris Object" were enthusiastically received. The model was blown in a wooden mould and were manufactured in clear glass as well as rio-brown, azure, green and smoke coloured glass for the Paris Exposition in 1937 and other exhibitions. The vase has come to be called the Savoy-vase due to its use in the Hotel Savoy Bistro in Helsinki since its opening in 1937. In 1949 the manufactuing of the vases was taken over by Iittala and it can be found in their product catalogues under the model number 3030.
