iittala Ultima Thule Tapio Wirkkala 2 Vintage CARAFES
- Source: eBay
This auction is for 2 pieces ofiittala glass, made in Finland . It is for 2 carafes, maybe for vinegar & oil, and they are mint, never used. They are from the 1960's and are still in the box. Included in the box is a small booklet that describes the glass and artist. They are 6" high (15 cm), the base is a little over 3" across. These were designed by Tapio Wirkkala . He was a member of the Finnish Academy and won plenty of prizes and awards in the 1950's & 1960's including the Gold Medal awarded by the President of Italy in Faenza 1963, 1966, 1967 and 1969. These 2 pieces are very prettty and probably pretty rare to be found still in the box. Thanks for looking.
