Oiva Toikka dark green glass vase with eleven facets, Nuutajärvi Notsjö, Finland 1960s. Factory signature to the base. An example of this vase appears in the catalogue of The British Museum assigned to Toikka. This is an early example of his work. The fascinating design with its odd number of facets means it looks different from each angle.

Excellent used condition.
