  • Q & A
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 Scandinavia 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 tumbler 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.

First founded as a glassworks company in 1881, iittala is now a leading company in modern Finnish design producing a range of dinnerware, glassware and art pieces.

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

Elegant glasses
January 28, 2020
With this purchase I completed my set of 6 Thule footed tumblers. I became enthralled with them when I flew in Business Class on FinnAir (they were used in the food and drinks service). In my opinion they embody the beauty and functionality of Nordic design.

Varying product quality
April 28, 2021
I have lived in Finland for many years and always loved iittala products. However the quality of these cups are just not the same. The pair of the tumbler I got are much thicker than what I get from Finland. What is worse is that the two glasses vary in quality: one has a much thicker base than the other (picture attached). Customer response was "even if I get a replacement they will be of the same quality as the ones I received" -- ? I am just afraid of getting another inferior pair. One star for the product and four stars for their fast response and agreed to arrange a refund.

Merchant Response:Ultima Thule glasses are mouth blown in Finland and can have varying thicknesses. All the glasses we sell have passed quality control at the iittala factory and are deemed first-quality. We carry only authentic first-quality iittala glassware - the same one would get in Finland, from the same factory.

Timeless beauty
June 29, 2020
When shopping for new glassware, I came across these timeless, beautifully designed glasses. They were very familiar to me since my mother owned the very same ones when I was growing up. They are nostalgic and more lovely than I had originally remembered them. When making my selection, I learned that my fianc? who is Finnish, also grew up with the same glassware in his home! We admire the beauty of our table everyday and appreciate a bit of our past. I would highly recommend these glasses based on the design, quality and beauty.

Love ultima Thule
April 7, 2015
Love the look of these glasses.
  • The look of the glass is elegant and very useful. I get complimented on their unique beauty. They are great ice breakers.
  • These glasses are a bit delicate and can break if not treated gently. But I love them, so I keep adding to my collection. :-)

These glasses are so beautiful and look like they're made out of ice. They're lightweight, good quality, the perfect size and shape, and are very comfortable to hold. I bought 2 sets at regular price and decided to get 1 more at sale price. Great purchase! I highly recommend.
  • Lightweight, good quality, nice size for drinking glasses.
