The iittala Kartio glassware, designed by Kaj Franck in 1958, is the perfect marriage of color and form. Internationally appreciated for its durable, simple and practical shape and function, the ittala Kartio line was one of Franck's internationally best known works. Real beauty, Frank maintained, could only be found in the practicality of use.The iittala Kartio pitcher is a beautiful carafe with simple geometric lines that make it easy to hold. Available in a variety of colors, this carafe is a great addition to the iittala Kartio line.

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.

This is a very pretty water jug although smaller than anticipated. More like a size for one person or two with small glasses but it looks lovely. I like this colour best too because it is subtle but pleasing. It is very comfortable to hold.

Outstanding design, get it now!
Fantastic pitcher, arrived rapidly, and well packaged. This is something I've wanted for ages - should have bought it a long time ago.
ProsBrilliant design and quality. Well packaged, speedy and well priced delivery. Looks even better with water in it.

Stunning color and functional
The color is stunning. It goes well with Kartio Sea Blue mouth blown (thin) tumblers. They are exactly the same color. Perfect. It is good for Katio Medium Tumblers as well for daily use. The shape is attractive and also functional. It is easy to hold and pour water. This mouth blown pitcher makes your table more elegant.
ProsBeautiful color. Design.

Pitcher is great
The product is excellent and replaces a broken pitcher. However, the site failed to put a picture alongside the color choices and I may have ordered the wrong blue!
