Nuutajarvi Notsjo was established in 1793, in Urjala, Finland, by Jacob Wilhelm de Pont and Harald Furnhjelm, originally making window glass + bottles. the company changed hands several times until it was bought by the Wartsila Group in 1950. Kaj Franck was made art director, a position he held until 1976. Other designers at Nuutajarvi include Oiva Toikka, Heikki Orvola, Saara Hopea, and Runnar Engblom. Nuutajarvi merged with Iittala in 1988, and Nuutajarvi glass is currently marketed under the Iittala name.

Thanks!!!
I have looked at all the available info I could find on the net….that's in english… but can't find much on the designer of this piece, the year, or the value. I really love it and don't want to sell it, just want to know if it's valuable enough to not put flowers in :-)
