An art glass bowl by Scandinavian designer Oiva Toikka, designed for the Nuutajarvi Glass Factory, Wartsila, Finland.  This large bowl has the “Fauna” design, a continuous parade of thriving plants and whimsical animals that encompass the sides and bottom- birds flying through the air, rhinosaurus and camel roaming the plain, exotic zebra, snakes sliding along the ground and plant-life such as flowers, ferns and trees bending heavy with fruit. There is too much to make mention of all. Special attention has been given to placement to enhance the narrative and tactility of the piece. This one truly needs to be experienced in the flesh to get the full appreciation. This bowl has come out of my personal collection. I bought it back in 2005. This captivating piece has found various spots around my home and has been much loved.

The original designs were created back in the late 1960's for Nuutajärvi and continued to be produced well into the 1980's by Iittala/Arabia. This piece is particularly rare because it has the Nuutajarvi plastic label. Since acquiring this piece I’ve never seen one with this label. This label gives it stronger investment appeal because it verifies it was one of the earlier bowls made- this piece is now about 40 years old. After most modern homeware has been binned because of poor quality or uninspiring design this vintage piece will be handed onto yet another generation. There are very few better ways to invest in your home and our environment. 

Condition and Dimensions

This vintage piece is in great condition for its age with no noticeable condition flaws to report at all. NO chips, NO cracks, NO repairs- it presents brilliantly. This bowl has a height of 16cm with a diameter of 16cm. (It’s a substantial piece.) Read my 1000+ feedback comments (ALL for vintage furniture/glass SALES). This is your guarantee that I strive to describe all my items as accurately as I can and I will not stock items unless they are in excellent condition.

Delivery and Pick-Up Information

Pick-up from Kallangur, Northern Suburbs BRISBANE is more than welcome. POSTAGE is offered internationally. Below are careful estimates for postages prices. There may be variations to the postage fee after we pack the item (but this is very infrequent and if applicable always minor.)



Throughout Australia (770g unpacked, APPROX 1320g PACKED (0.24X0.24X0.23) approx. 3.31 boxed size)-

ABOUT $16 to Brisbane. $23 to Sydney, ABOUT $25 to Melbourne and ABOUT $32 to Perth. This information is offered as an extra service for customers as a GUIDE only.


This information is offered as an extra service for customers as a GUIDE only. The exact price for postage will be given to the buyer at check-out after the piece has been packed.  (I am correct with my postage estimate 95% of the time and if I’m out it’s by very little- it can also pack to be cheaper than expected.)

International Locations- NOTE THAT PRICES IN THE EBAY POSTAGE CALCULATOR FOR ALL INTERNATIONAL LOCATIONS ARE FOR AIR MAIL with NO insurance (delivery in 7-14 days).  (Insurance can be added for a small extra fee- normally about $12.) You can obtain cheaper freight from Australia by requesting SURFACE MAIL (by SEA- delivery in 18 to 100 days). Just ask at the time of check-out BEFORE YOU PAY.

The above postage estimate includes $2.95 for a signature on delivery. Insurance against being lost or broken up to the value of the start/listing price is also included in the postage estimate above.


A charge of $3.00 is included in the fee above to cover the cost of searching for and storing used packing materials. With the millions of cardboard boxes that end up as landfill every year we don’t believe in supporting the manufacture of boxes for post. Instead of buying new boxes and packing materials and passing this cost onto our customers we spend considerable time sourcing used boxes and then fashioning boxes to fit each item. We do the same for bubble-wrap and foam pieces. This requires a large investment of time, energy, ingenuity, organization and storage space- it is much easier and cheaper to buy new packing materials but I can’t justify taking the easy way out when so much packing material ends up as landfill. Our $3.00 charge does little to pay for the time (and storage) needed do this and to pack your item (there is also the time needed to bike the package to the post office). This is something we’re happy to do for our customers and the environment. We appreciate your support in this area.


Our preferred payment option is DIRECT BANK DEPOSIT. Thanks. (We are forced by ebay to offer PayPal and reluctantly do so. PayPal is owned by ebay and generates millions of extra revenue on top of ebay’s commission fees.) Cash on pick-up is also available. Payment by Australia Post money order may also be available but with prior communication through ebay only.

PayPal works easiest for International transactions.
