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 Scandinaiva 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.

iittala

You’d be hard-pressed to find a Finn or fan of Finnish design that doesn’t recognize the iittala logo, designed by Timo Sarpaneva in 1956 and inspired by his “i-line” range. The logo serves as a symbol of quality craftsmanship, timeless design, and thoughtful functionality. Many collectors ... More iittala

Tapio Wirkkala

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

Pretty and durable
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!

Gorgeous
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.
ConsPlease 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.

Just gorgeous
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.
ProsClassic design and look. Great size for everyday use.
ConsNone whatsoever except being eminently collectable!

Unique and beautiful glasses
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.
ProsCool factor is 10.
ConsNone

classic design
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!

Reunited......
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.
ProsBeautiful design and perfect size. Makes your guests feel special.....
ConsThere is nothing to dislike about this glass......

The Perfect Rock Glass
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!
