4kg Ice bucket & six glasses, heavily textured. Iittala?
« on: March 03, 2007, 04:16:43 PM »

Hi all,

Could anyone enlighten me as to who designed/made this set? The ice bucket/punch bucket? weighs over 4kg! All are very heavily textured.
I thought maybe Iittala, but I cannot find anything to confirm/denounce my thoughts anywhere.
Ice bucket is 10 3/4" in height and the glasses 4"
All help and thoughts are greatly appreciated.

The little stems look like Ultima Thule, but I can't find that shape or the ice bucket...

still looking....

Hi Della,
Elimination process here, but it is not "Boutique" by Panek, for SU.
I think you are looking at the right area, Scandinavia.
Regards,
Marcus

Stems are definitely not Ultima Thule. http://www.finnishgifts.com/iittala-ultima-thule.html
(Mum has collected Iittala for years.)

Thanks for the input  :D I have looked very closely at the glasses. Almos impossible to see any markings because of the density of the pattern, but I have found that each of the glasses has a different, single  number impressed on the inside of the foot.

My question now is: Are the French the only ones to practise the impressing of numbers, or did other countries do this also?

Sorry if this seems a dumb question, but if you don't know the answer to something, trying to find out an answer seems the most sensible thing to do.  :-X

I think the set could be Oberglas, Austria. Impressed mould numbers point at an automated manufacturing process, so you're not looking for a small outfit.

Aha, that is where I recognise the pattern from {{{{lightbulb}}}} I once had a bottle, which you kindly identified for me as being Oberglas or Italian, Ivo. It had the same 'flame' kind of pattern on it.
Thank you, again, Ivo  ;D
