Nanny Still designed Saturnus for Riihimäen Lasi in 1961. They were in production 1961-68, and are hand made with each piece being an individual. There are three sizes of Saturnus, and these were also produced in yellow crystal glass.
The items here are made of neodymium glass which changes color from purple to light green-blue depending on the wavelength of the light they are in. See our three photos that follow the color change of one of the smaller pieces in different kind of illumination. The green blue color shows up in tube light and the rose color is photographed in warm old fashioned bulb light. And many shades in between can be seen depending on the situation.
These are all signed: NANNY STILL RIIHIMÄEN LASI OY They are vintage items with only minor signs of wear. No cracks or chips.
