About the Designer
Tapio Wirkkala Finland (1915 - 1969)
Tapio Wirkkala was born in Hankoo, Finland. Tapio Wirkkala is a symbolic figure of Finnish design, an artist of great diversity for whom no material was alien and who left no area of design unexplored. He was one of the most distinguished artists to shape Scandinavian design and industrial art. Tapio Wirkkala was a very productive and multitalented designer and sculptor. 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. Tapio Wirkkala was awarded in several prestigious competitions. Worth mentioning is at least the three Grand Prix medals from the Milan Triennale in 1954 and one Grand Prix medal and a gold medal in the 1960 Milan Triennale.

Lovely crystal beverage set for the money and nothing less than what I was expecting. It's well crafted and designed.

We use these every weekend for our Campari tonic. Love the design! I also bought the wine glasses and the smaller version of the double old fashioned glass. They are stylish and fun.

Even more sophisticated in person. The striated glass reflects light like icicles. Gorgeous! I use these for bourbon and my guests love the glasses (and love the bourbon).

They are amazing, just amazing. I am happy with the set.

The glass feels thinner than I expected but the glasses are still fabulous. I will start giving these away as housewarming gifts.

I got these on sale to complete my set. A great classic pattern.
Current glass quality

I do not think that the glass is of the same quality as the glasses I purchased twelve years ago. The glass seems more thin and less durable. Of the four glasses I have purchased in the last year two broke while being hand washed and one now has a chip along the edge after machine washing. My original six are fine!
