Vintage Riihimaki Blue Grey Hooped Finnish Glass Vase 1960s 1970s

This is a very special vase - it's in a very rare colour and unusually good condition.

Rare colour for this model - Is in a greyish-blue with a hint of lavender - has a deep intensity of colour and a bit of a shimmer

Due to its industrial, mechanical shape it is known as the 'camshaft' vase.

Sculptural statement piece, these stunning vases are becoming harder to find.

Deep grey-blue coloured glass, cased (lined) with clear glass.

Handmade in Finland in the period 1965-1975.

This design is usually attributed to Tamara Aladin.

28cm tall.

Excellent vintage condition with no chips and only very minor signs of age.

* This vase in a deeper, greyer, more intense colour than the standard 'steel blue' export colour and is closer to the 'midnight blue' used for standard Riihimaki models. See my blog on Riihimaki colours for more details:

We are specialist sellers, and also collectors of glass, so you can be confident in the accuracy of our descriptions - we aim for our buyers to receive items in the same or better condition than they were expecting, and our reviews should illustrate this.

Note that we have attempted to show and state the condition as accurately as possible but this is a pre-loved, vintage item and some minor signs of age and/or use are to be expected.

There may also inevitably be slight variations in the colours shown due to lighting, the camera lens and the device the image is viewed through.

Handmade items may have slight imperfections from the handmade manufacturing process, such as air bubbles in glass, which add to their uniqueness and charm.
