Iittala Horns
« on: February 02, 2010, 06:57:02 AM »
Hi. Just picked these up today, what are they? Are you meant to drink out of them or are they simply vases? And can anyone tell me who designed them and possible age? cheers  :mrgreen:

Hi:

Drinking horns designed by Valto Kokko in 1984. I believe they stopped production in 1995. I had hoped that they were something you were supposed to put on your head when on public transportation in Helsinki.
