Founded in 1910 Riihimaki were at one stage the largest glass manufacturers in Finland. Over the eighty odd years that the company was in existence Riihimaki produced some seriously beautiful glass, including this wonderfully simple bamboo-inspired vase, Design no. 1376. The vase was designed by Tamara Aladin who joined the company in 1959, and produced this design in 1970. Some 45 years later and the vase still has such a contemporary edge to it, as do most of the Riihimaki pieces that I’ve researched.

A timeless piece of glass that would look fantastic in a contemporary setting.

NB: Please pay attention to the dimensions below – this is not a large vase.

Dimensions: 25cm tall x 10cm in diameter (at its widest)

Price: R150
