Question about Wirkkala ice block bowl
« on: October 02, 2008, 08:15:22 AM »
Good afternoon,

I have two ice block bowls 'Jääpala of Wirkkala, number 3847.

I have a question about the colour; one is made of very white glass and the other one is pink/brown- ish. Is that normal ? Did Wirkkala make items in different colours ? And do some colours have more value ?

Looking forward to your answer, thank you very much in advance.

Kind regards from sunny Holland,
