Iittala Ultima Thule Anniversary Champagne Glasses (Set of 2)

  • Q & A
Cheers! 2015 marks the 100th anniversary since Tapio Wirkkala’s birth, and this set of two champagne glasses is the perfect commemoration and celebration of his life and works. In classic literature, Ultima Thule is used to reference the furthest possible place in the world. Designed in 1968, the Ultima Thule Glassware similarly references the icy cold reaches of Scandinavia and the distinct expressive power of glass as a medium. The unique melting texture of these pieces are achieved through specialized molds, the first of which were made by Wirkkala himself. Though a break from the typical clean-lined nature of Nordic design, the extraordinary collection gained popularity after being used on Finnair’s first flights between Helsinki and New York. Iittala Ultima Thule is still loved today by modern and traditional enthusiasts for its timeless quality and charm.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a Finn or fan of Finnish design that doesn’t recognize the iittala logo, designed by Timo Sarpaneva in 1956 and inspired by his “i-line” range. The logo serves as a symbol of quality craftsmanship, timeless design, and thoughtful functionality. Many collectors ... More iittala

Tapio Wirkkala

From graphic art to banknotes, Finnish-born Tapio Wirkkala's portfolio is a quite arguably one of the most versatile. Still, he is most widely known for his wonderful work with glass. Texture plays a big role in Wirkkala's creative portfolio. His 1952 "Tapio" glassware experiments with air ... More Tapio Wirkkala

Great for old hands!
The outside design which is textured is great for people with disabilities and old hands . . . I am both. The size is also ergonomically beneficial especially with small hands and older hands. Great glasses!
ProsEverything I just wrote.
ConsPackaging was not sufficent. Half my glasses were cracked

Unique and fun
I received these as part of our wedding registry and immediately fell in love with them. They're definitely a unique take on the normal stemless flute and the craftsmanship will wow whoever you're "cheers"ing with.

Great glasses!
These glasses are very nice-- a bit thinner/less substantial than some other items in the Ultima Thule collection, but I guess that's better for drinking Champagne! Fun to have something for drinking sparkling beverages that is elegant and different than standard flutes.

Champagne glasses
Great glasses. I mostly use them for water or juice. They look lovely on the table. They look fragile but are much sturdier than you would think.

Celebrate 💯
Timeless classic. Assumed they would be taller (are 4 1/2") but hold 6oz when filled to the brim.
ProsNot so worried about these toppling over after we've had a few!

A Multi-Use Glass
These champagne glasses have many uses: champagne, juice glasses, and glasses of a perfect size for small people with little hands who need small servings. I am so glad to see them offered again! Even though we did not think of them initially as champagne glasses, we have tried them now for champagne and they are lovely!
ProsMultiple uses, excellent serving size.

Kippis! Cheers!
True to the spirit of iittala, these glasses are a refreshing alternative to traditional champagne glasses. Recipients may mistake them for juice glasses, but adding a bottle of champagne to your gift will avoid any confusion.
ProsPart of an iconic Finnish glassware collection. Not just designed in Finland but made there as well.

Better than a flute
My mom had these when I was younger. I had only three left, so I am thrilled they are re-issued. They feel great in your hands, shaped much like a flute but without the awkward stem. We chill them in the fridge before using, and the champagne stays wonderfully cold. Also great for white wine and brunch mimosas.
ProsDelicate and stable on the table.
