A rare extra big example of a Stellaria bowl (design no 3450), designed by Tapio Wirkkala. Made in Finland for Iittala, a high quality Scandinavian brand. Dating from between 1970 and 1985. It's hand signed to the base with "Tapio Wirkkala 3450". High quality crystal-content bright clear moulded glass - ice like, textured.
Round with a narrower foot and slightly tapering in 'icy' textured sides, with an irregular undulating rim. Internally smooth. Designed as a statement over-sized bowl. The crystal content makes it catch the light beautifully. 
Apx 27-28cm wide (widest), 25cm wide rim, and about 16cm tall. Weighs around 3.8kg (it goes off the end of my scales!)
Excellent condition. Signed to the flat polished base. The base has scratches as you'd expect for 40-50 years old. Perfect for display and as an investment. Fabulous bit of classic mid century design. 
Includes P&P to the UK. Will come very well packed and insured.
