Designed by Oiva Toikka in 1964 as part of the ‘Kastehelmi’ pattern range. Made by Nuutajarvi (also known as Notsjo) of Finland. (He is renowned for his designs for glassware for Iittala the Finnish design company as well as marimekko. Oiva Toikka himself has sought to look beyond his own era and has instead harkened back to an earlier aesthetic. When asked to define his work, Toikka has said: ”Baroque is exactly the right word to describe my work – after all, one of the word’s original meanings is ”an irregular pearl.“)
They cast a pretty psychedelic pattern on the table when the candles are lit.
Perfect condition. 1”H x 3" in diameter.
They complement Nanny Still, Blenko, or anything for that matter.
Epic, sweet and small.
