More Ultima Thule - lovely stuff it is - we have some tumblers we use and they're nice to drink really cold water from - tastes colder because of the icicle effect I swear!

Engraved T Wirkkala 2515 on the base, 31cm high. Presumably Iittala although it doesn't have a sticker. I've been looking around the net for more info but so far haven't found another one like this one

I recently found a set of 4 Ultima Thule cordial/short glasses as well! I think I paid 69 cents for each glass  Laughter
