It’s the little things in life…


… that mean the most! 

… a present from a dear friend, who knows what I like, she took the time to find this special 'little' vase that means the world to me… ! Thank You. I feel humbled to know you, you are special and you have made a 'little' dream of mine come true today … the Pollo Vase is now living on my shelf and everytime I look at it it will remind me of you and how unbelievably generous, warm and thoughtful you are!


Tapio Wirkkala designed the Pollo porcelain vase in 1970, which is included in the Rosenthal Studio Line Collection. Tapio Wirkkala can be described as one of the icons of Finnish design and a symbol of the international success of postwar Finnish design. A couple of years back mentioned him in my Vintage Ceramics Read


My friend, Marjolein who bought the vase at Modern Relics for me runs a wonderful blog called GoMarjo. Here she writes about her personal travel experiences… Marrakesh, New York, Brussels, Italy, Copenhagen and more… super travel tips you can always use.
