That's what happens if I try to write without checking my reference Robbo! yes the Luna are a bit more rounded, I had'nt spotted the pic of the bases which are quite different when I posted  :( [that's my excuse anyway and I'm sticking to it!] I've had a few sets of the standard Luna tumblers and a boxed set of shot glasses, so I assume there was also a larger size, but cant remember seeing one?

Martyn, I was just taking the sizes from the captions in that book. It would make sense for there to be a larger size of Luna, especially if you've found shot glasses. It lists a 30cl Prisma - I've never seen those either!

Pip, those glasses are a dream - I use them every day - they are a complete joy to use.

I'll have to check through the rest...

It sounds like you got a "job lot" of Nuutajärvi - any more goodies?

Hi Robbo,
My husband inherited loads of just about everything recently from his parents who inherited from an uncle who was a manic collector of mainly studio pottery but also glass. I've been on a steep learning curve since October. A lot of the glass is Whitefriars but I came across these pieces of Kaj Franck and reading your conversation with Martyn K I now wonder whether some of the small shot glasses are actually KF rather than WF. I've got quite a few which are vaguely streaky iridescent, whose those might be I have no idea. I'll try and find time to put some on here in batches.
