iittala Ultima Thule Red Wine Glasses

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.

Awesome quality and unique design!

molly from renton, WA– Verified Buyer

These glasses are a great weight and conversation piece. Perfect for red wines and sherry! The only thing I would change about them is the stem - I wish it was a bit longer.

Pros: Dishwasher safe, sturdy, truly unique design and detail
Cons: None really - the stem could be a little bit longer.
