  • Q & A
In modern literature, Ultima Thule is used to reference the furthest possible place in the world. Tapio Wirkkala’s 1968 Ultima Thule glassware similarly references the icy cold reaches of Scandinavia and the distinct expressive power of Finnish glass. The stemmed goblet has textured sides, achieved by a time-laboring technique that is created by the molten glass burning the surface of the wooden molds.

The Ultima Thule stemmed goblet 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 molds.

Love Ultima Thule stemmed goblets
April 27, 2023
The glassware is beautiful to look at and beautiful to hold. Lightweight, well made, I have often given these as gifts to friends and family. I could not be happier with the order. That is why I always return to Finn Style.
  • Beautiful glassware, wonderful service
  • no cons

Too small - otherwise perfect
February 8, 2022
This goblet is beautiful, sturdy and easy to hold. Heavy but not too heavy. A real luxury to use these as my every day drinking glasses. They would be perfect if they held at least 16 ounces, but they only hold 12, so they need to be refilled too often.

Perfect drinking glasses for everything.

We have been transitioning over to using these goblets and the Champagne flutes as our all purpose, all the time glassware and just love it. They are beautiful, stable and a good price point for enjoying them everyday. The stable bases and the textured finish make them easy to hold onto. We drink a lot of
raspberry herbal iced tea which looks so beautiful in these glasses. As we simplify our lives we are enjoying these beautiful glasses everyday as our only glassware. Perfect!

Great for beer or sparkling water

I live the way these glasses feel in your hand. They’re very solid and the base is really nice.

lovely item
April 29, 2020
This is a lovely item which we never received. It was backordered and so we changed to something else. I am getting so many desperate pleas to review it here that I will tell you that our own set of these, from long ago, is great.

Ultima is my favorite line of iittala
October 28, 2018
Apart from the fact that it may be more difficult to clean the coffee stains, Ultima is absolutely the hybrid of beauty and functionalism. The glass is heavy and sturdy. I added this stemmed goblet to my collection. Will get more.

I received a set of 8 glasses as a wedding gift in 1995. I refused to open them for fear of the kids breaking them. Well, I was right. One Holiday, 1 went missing. This is after they grew and moved out. I cannot have a set of 7, t just doesn’t work. So I ordered 4 more, just in case!!!
  • Beautiful for use at dinner when you want nice but don?t want to break out the vintage set of crystal.

It goes without saying that iittala glassware is beautiful. However, it is also sturdy, easy to clean & balanced. I also appreciate that it is still made in Finland! Finnstyle does an amazing job of protective packaging & prompt delivery. Clearly a great place to shop!

Ittala Ultima Thule Stemmed Goblet
June 2, 2016
They are lovely, well made and appealing to the eye. I have had this set for close to 5 years and like the size and the feel of the goblet. Although they are strong, once in a while I will crack the rim of the glass, hence I have ordered thnnStyle over the last few years to restock the glasses that I need. FinnStye has a great web site, it is easy navigating and the people in the company are accommodating. The Ultima Thule Stemmed Goblet looks lovely on a dining table, just as it does when you're having orange juice in the morning. It's a good size, good feel, the design is lovely. We are very happy to discover FinnStyle!
  • Excellent website, easy to navigate. I love your products. Have purchased several items, most especially reorders of the Ultima Thule Stemmed Gobet. FinnStyle is a wonderful company to work with.
  • none, I am completely happy

I ordered the goblets on a Thursday night and they were delivered to my front door by Saturday afternoon. I could not believe it. Even better than Amazon Prime!

Still Great
August 16, 2015
My daughter who is nearly 40 and is a designer in LA sent me a text with a photo of an Ittala glass. Didn't we have these when I was growing up, she asked. Indeed we did. She told me she'd really like to have some so I sent 8 glasses for an anniversary gift to her. Then my husband asked why we don't have any anymore. Well, I broke most of them eventually, I admitted. Buy some more, he said. So we did. I just ordered and received 8 goblets and 8 sauce dishes. Love them as much as ever.

  • Wish it were a little taller still. These hold 8-9 ounces. Would love 12 ounces.

Love all Finnish glassware and tableware!

My daughter has a set of Ultima Thule which I gave her, but had none myself. Soon remedied that situation as I am
of Finnish background. I own many pieces from Finland and love not only the beauty of the designs but the durability.
Finitely has kept me supplied for quite awhile and I am always happy with their services.
