Art Glass Decorative Bowl Revontulet Tauno Wirkkala for Humppila Glass Finland Mid Century MCM Finnish Ice Glass Vintage Decor Tableware

Sorry, this item has sold.

Revontulet translates to Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis in Finnish and this fine work of mid-century Finnish Art Glass was designed by Tauno Wirkkala for Humppila Glass of Finland in the 1960s. This decorative bowl from the Revontulet series was designed to resemble the Northern Lights but also has an icy appearance; the outside of the bowl is rough and textured like ice with protrusions of ice crystals or sheets of the Aurora Borealis rising up towards the sky, while the the interior is polished and shiny. This Finnish ice glass bowl will be a focal point of your room and it is a silent nod to the world outside. The cornerstone of mid century modern architecture and design is the ability to seamlessly blend indoor and outdoor living and this piece from Tauno Wirkkala certainly realizes that intention. This piece measures 8 inches in diameter by 4 inches in height.

Frequently Asked Questions

Care instructions

Most vintage and antique glassware should be hand washed only and not in the dishwasher; especially any pieces with graphics or colourful patterns, for example Pyrex, Fire King, Glasbake, Corelle, drinkware, etc. Dishwashers can dull the finish on these unique pieces and cause premature wear to the surface and patterns or cause what is known as DWD or Dishwasher Damage which is irreversible. It's always better to be safe and wash by hand if you can.

Add some dish washing liquid into a sink or basin and add warm water. Placing a towel underneath can help to avoid breakage. It is best to use a damp cloth for any pieces with hand-painted decorations to preserve the art as even regular hand-washing can degrade these over time.
