I have owned this vase for a few years now . It was given to me from my aunt who didn't care for it. . I loved the style of it and how unique it was so I took it and added to my collection. I had never done any research on it until now . The only thing I know is from what is etched on the vase . The etching claims it is a Tapio Wirkkala from Iittala . It measures approximately 6.75" in height and 5.63" in width . Other than that I no nothing about it . It has no numbers etched on the vase either . I have tried to search for items similar to this one and have found nothing . Any information on it will to greatly appreciated . I have included some pictues of the vase and the etching .

The design is called 'Pear', and dates from 1951.
