iittala Ultima Thule 12.8 Oz. Highball Glass
Christina from Brooklyn, NY– Verified Buyer
These really are great glasses. I have another Thule set (the smaller glasses as well) and everyone remarks on how lovely they are. Guests are especially impressed by the "feet" underneath the glasses, which are shaped to look like hanging icicles. Totally worth the investment.

These were purchased as a gift for my husband. When they arrived they were in a nice box and packed well. They arrived quickly. the glass is a good thickness & the design & feet are a unique touch.

PJ from Fullerton, CA– Verified Buyer
These are the best glasses ever. They have little feet so that even when the glass is full of ice they do not need coasters underneath them. Never a mark on a table
