  • Q & A
2015 marks the 100th anniversary since Tapio Wirkkala’s birth, and this impressive carafe 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.

Ultima Thule carafe
August 10, 2019
I have always admired this carafe. It also makes a lovely vase for small bouquets. I have the matching glasses but have never purchased the carafe. I’m glad it was on sale! I especially like this pattern and observed ice formations like it in northern Canada.
As I mentioned it doubles as a lovely vase.

This is just beautiful.! The feel of Ultima in your hand with the glasses is amazing, well, the carafe is equally amazing. It is a must-have if you own any of the Ultima Thule glasses! Love it! It is a limited production, so don't miss it!
Great for water, wine, juice, mixed cocktails

A "Must Have" for Thule Collectors
April 4, 2015
The return of this pitcher/carafe is a cool addition to the current iittala lineup and a "must have" for Thule collectors. It's just the right size for water, juice and wine and makes a great gift for any milestone.

Still made in Finland! Get one while you can!
