A Set of 4 Tapio Wirkkala Iittala Cocktail Glasses. A design icon and the perfect glass for your martini. Very good vintage condition, I cannot see any chips or cracks, just the small amount of wear on the base that you would expect for the age. This is from the Dreams Icons website.. A wonderful design icon - The original and still the best.
This particular design is known as the Cocktail Glass' edition, although we suspect that the Finnish etiquette Police will not be knocking on the door if you wish to use them for an alternative form of liquid refreshment. The Tapio Glassware range by Tapio Wirkkala has achieved iconic status that few can match and many yearn for.
Originally created back in 1952 these award winning designs have stood the test of time, looking every bit as fresh and inspiring today as they did back then. Those beautiful free flowing organic forms sit perfectly in the hand and that distinctive bubble in the stem adds the perfect finishing touch.
It also reveals an inspired artistic touch and mastery of glass-blowing methods. These award winning designs were instrumental in propelling Finnish design into the international spotlight.The Tapio range is highly adaptable to different moods and situations and may require significant testing to fully appreciate their versatility. Collection in person is welcome, otherwise I will send them well wrapped and padded.
