Midcentury jug and bowl in clear glass from the "Flora" series by Oiva Toikka. Designed 1966 for Nuutajärvi of Finland.
The Flora series comprised a range of glassware, moulded from high quality Finnish glass with detailed irregular relief patterns of flowers and leaves. These items are both serving size (see below for approximate dimensions). Very good condition with just minor signs of age and use.
The Flora range was produced for a short period from the late 1960s by Nuutajarvi; then reissued towards the end of the twentieth century under the Iittala brand. Both these items have their original Nuutajarvi labels.
Jug H 15.5cm x W 17.5cm (including handle) x D 11cm
Bowl height 10cm x diameter 19.5cm
