Mid Century teal tableware series / service Scandinavian ?
« on: November 13, 2017, 04:55:16 PM »
I picked up a service of this ultra-marine / teal tableware here on US east coast.  Based on the tumbler form and color I initially thought perhaps Scandinavian (Riihimaki, Nuutajarvi ?).  But the base ground base ring looks similar to American Imperial glass from the 1950's as well.  Any thoughts on who did this series.


water goblet 6 1/8", champagne saucer / sherbet 5", tall tumbler 5", short tumbler 2 7/8"

Hi,
the pitcher and the tumblers are Nuutajärvi, designed by Kaj Franck >> http://www.designlasi.com/en/content/pitcher-5601-franck-kaj-en //  http://www.designlasi.com/en/content/tumbler-5023-franck-kaj-en
No idea about the footed glasses -- may be Scandi, but similar pieces were also produced in Germany, Belgium,...

Michael, thank you for your input on the id.

When I purchased the set I recognized the profile of the tumblers, but hadn't seen the stemware.  Because the color is very consistent throughout the set, I assumed all were from the same manufacturer. 

Again, thanks for looking and your help with the id.
