Designed by Helena Tynell (1918-2016), in 1963. The Aurinkopullo, or Sun bottle vase became a popular design of Tynell's. The first vases were produced in clear glass only but as the popularity of the design grew it was produced in at least 17 further colours.
The Sun Bottle Vase was produced by Riihimäki Glass in 1964-74.
Produced in 3 sizes, the one for sale is the smallest of the 3 sizes made. The two larger bottles were mould blown glass and hand finished, the smallest was only produced as a mechanically made vase without pontil marks.
This piece is a great entry to the magic of the Aurinkopullo vase.
