In modern literature, Ultima Thule is used to reference the furthest possible place in the world. Tapio Wirkkala’s Ultima Thule glassware similarly references the icy cold reaches of Scandinaiva and the distinct expressive power of Finnish glass. Designed in 1968, Wirkkala’s Ultima Thule contributed to iittala’s national breakthrough and remains a distinctive iittala design.The Ultima Thule footed serving bowl has textured sides that reference the northern icy terrain of Scandinavia. The unique texture of the glass is created by a time-laboring technique that is created by the molten glass burning the surface of the wooden moulds.

Iittala Ultima Thule Serving Bowl

I purchased the Iittala Ultima Thule Serving Bowl for a young second cousin’s wedding gift. I did not know the girl, but her mother said she loved “all things Finnish “. The bride wrote to tell me she was thrilled to receive the serving bowl. She said she had been happy to find that she could use it bas a centerpiece, or as a formal or very casual serving bowl. She said it looked great with virtually everything. Nice thank you note!
Thank YOU, Finn Style, for a good wedding gift!
  • Goes with all occasions and all styles on the table top!
  • Easy to love!

What a beautiful bowl. I received this bowl as a wedding gift, to start my collection as the Scandinavian women in my family have made this collection as a tradition. For my sister's birthday, I gave her this bowl to start her collection.
The bowl is made of quality material and is very heavy. It will be beautiful on any table.
