Unfortunately, I broke my iitala Ultima Thule pitcher. With the Holidays coming up, I decided the time was right to replace it. When my new pitcher came - I was so pleased. The lip has been updated and looks like it will work nicely. Ultima Thule is so beautiful. I am thrilled with my purchase! And my delivery came so fast!!

I’ve wanted this pitcher for a long time because it goes with my glasses. It’s substantial and stable/well balanced. It’s beautiful sitting on my table whether it holds iced tea, water or a bouquet of flowers. Yes, it’s a splurge but it’s so lovely.
