  • 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 footed "on the rocks" glasses have textured sides, achieved by a time-laboring technique that is created by the molten glass burning the surface of the wooden moulds.The Ultima Thule footed old fashioned 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.

These glasses were a gift for my daughter--the only thing she wanted for her birthday. And, not suprisingly, she loves them.

I've owned several sizes of these Ultima Thule's for many years, and never tire of them. The icy look on these super-hot summer days is perfect, visually refreshing.
By Sirkku
what about the "i" ??
February 10, 2023
The glasses are lovely, but this is the second time that the iconic "i" sticker has been missing from one of the glasses that I ordered. When I called, a sticker was mailed out immediately. In the first case that took care of the problem, but the second time the sticker came off immediately when the glass was washed. I don't know if I'm old fashioned and one of the few that want them, but I was somewhat taken aback when the person I spoke to asked if I had planned on leaving the sticker on the glasses?!

Adding a few more just in case…….

Had my iittala glasses since my visit to Finland in 1983. Thought I’d have a few extra just in case of breakage later on.

I have had these for many years. I ordered more so I could share them with my adult children. They make a simple drink special. Both the appearance and the feel are pleasing.

Elegant - gift for a lifetime of use.
December 14, 2021
I purchased these to start my daughter's collection of fine glassware for entertaining. She treasures them for the unique design, beauty, heft, and size -- perfect for a large ice cube and a dram of whiskey. She's not afraid to use them as they don't slip from damp or clumsy hands, are sturdy enough to survive bumps, and are textured enough not to show small scratches. Lifetime gift.

Such beautiful glassware!
July 4, 2021
A glass is a glass is a glass …. Right?
Wrong. I finally ordered these Ultima Thule footed on the rocks glasses. Perfect size for “on the rocks” glassware, and very easy to hold in your hand. For me the size can be an issue with some beverage glasses because I have small hands.
But most important, the glass looks like a chilled glass of clear water on a hot day! Stylistically, these glasses are stunning because the look like a chunk of an iceberg gracefully floating in your hand. So inviting. …
  • Solid, well shaped and sized adult beverage glasses. (Of course, these glasses can be used for anything!)
  • The design in the glassware with all of the ?bumps? makes them easy to hold onto.
  • None yet!

As a child of the '60's and '70's, I love the look, touch, and sensibility of this design.... it echoes of my childhood. A chilled beverage in a glass that looks like ice, as well as non-slip surface on the glass.... ingenious. In a sense, a brutalist example in your hand. It is what it is, and what it isn't.
  • Design, feel, iconic touchstone of the era.

These glasses are just beautiful and makes every beverage a festive occasion. I have a couple I have used regularly for the past year, they withstand the dishwasher and remain aesthetically lovely. Pretty and durable!

These glasses not only look spectacular, they feel amazing in my hand. A great heft without being too heavy and 10 ounces is a nice size for a generous pour or just a glass of sparkling water.
  • Please please FinnStyle, I realize these glasses are fragile, but packing peanuts are annoying to deal with and, more importantly, horrible for the environment.

Ultima Thule, my favorite

This is a classic piece of Finnish design, I'm so glad they are "back" in style. The On the Rocks glasses are especially my favorites. Great quality and design, love the whole range.

I remember my father having these glasses in the 60s when I was growing up. I was delighted to see that this great design is still available. They are a lovely weight and size and it is a treat using them with ice clinking inside on a day to day basis. The icicle look just adds to the coolness of the drink on a hot day.
  • Classic design and look. Great size for everyday use.
  • None whatsoever except being eminently collectable!

I ordered this glass for my husband's rock glass. He loves this!

Unique and beautiful glasses
December 11, 2014
More like a work of art vs functional item. The bottom of the glass is made up of what appear to be large bubbles and it looks so cool.
Like bubbles frozen on the surface of a pond. You should show a photo of the bottom as my description does not do its appearance justice. I will buy these again.
  • Cool factor is 10.

classic design
August 15, 2014
A classic design that never goes out of style. Love these glasses. I always get lots of complements on them. I received a set of 8 many years ago as a gift and use them every day. Over time two of my glasses had broken and it is so nice to be able to replace them and complete the set again. The quality and consistency is such that you can't tell the new glasses from the older ones. They all look new!

I bought glasses and a pitcher of the Iittala Ultima Thule in 1968 at a Finnish shop nearby in Dana Point, CA. Over the years, the shop moved, and the glasses were broken, but I held on to my pitcher and used it lovingly. Recently, when I was in Helsinki, I picked up a few glasses to match the pitcher and decided to look online for more to complete my set. I found your website and was able to order and receive my glassware easily and in a timely manner...

Versatile design & size with an "ice look" tumbler

This 10 oz. Iittala Ultimate footed tumbler looks like you are drinking out of a class made of beautiful carved ice. It is versatile for any type of drink and feels solid .....and yet beautiful. The footed bottom adds a different dimension to your table setting or cocktail party.
  • Beautiful design and perfect size. Makes your guests feel special.....
  • There is nothing to dislike about this glass......

Received my order promptly, well packed, & in a reusable "keeper" box. Love the size, feel, & the look of a glass that makes something extraordinary out of a drinking glass.

The Perfect Rock Glass
August 12, 2011
I Love drinking form this glass. It always looks clean and cold. It is rugged almost unbreakable; except I broke my last one and had to replace it immediately. If there is one drawback it is cost...$25/glass is pretty steep.I didn't shop the price but FinnStyle was very good about delivery and follow through. Cheers!
