iittala Ultima Thule 12.8 Oz. Highball Glass

Legend has it that Ultima Thule was a far northern island buried in ice and snow, where the sun never set. Two thousand years ago, the ancient Greeks thought it was the edge of the world. Ultima Thule also has a deeper meaning; the extreme limits and capabilities of humankind, the ability to achieve the unattainable. Determined and continued experimentation with glassblowing techniques created Ultima Thule's unusual organic effect. The form gradually changes as molten glass burns the surface of the wooden moulds, crystallizing a particularly Finnish expression of glass in an eternal design classic.

His work ranges from exceptional creations of art glass to industrial design in the form of beer bottles and banknotes. Wirkkala also designed jewelery, sculptures and furniture.

Wonderfully versatile!

from Eugene, OR – Verified Buyer

Glamorous or Casual......whatever mood you want to set....these are the ideal glass! Perfect for serving drinks with ice......or even to be used as a Waterglass. I must be honest.....they caught my eye, because of icy looking candlesticks, that I bought from Finland. I love that they are hefty....not afraid of using them, or putting them in the dishwasher. I love the special touch, that they add to any setting! Exquisite!

LOVELY GLASSES

from Albuquerque, NM – Verified Buyer

I thought these would be slightly smaller than they are, since I was trying to replace a couple I have broken. The capacity is off slightly, so when I measured the ones I already had, i believed these would be the same size. They're larger. I'll keep them, even though I don't have any others this size. Pros: Beautiful classic glass Cons: Capacity may differ even after measuring

Love the glasses! Sold them when I worked for Rosenthal Studio Haus many years ago and I always liked them. When I saw them on sale I decided to buy them. Ordering was easy and they shipped right away.

gorgeous

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.

great product!

from Minneapolis,Mn – Verified Buyer

These are a beautiful set! Love the little "legs" on the bottom of the glasses! Haven't used them in the summer yet but with the glass not sitting flat on the surface I 'm hoping I won't have to use coasters with them. Love them!!

Interesting

from Houston, TX – Verified Buyer

The picture represents this unique glass well. It has an art like appearance. Practically speaking, I like that condensate doesn't drip off of it. I think it is a bit large for my grip.

Fantastic!

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
