An important part of my glass collection consists of pieces designed by the Finnish designer Nanny Still. This series, HARLEKIINI, was designed in 1959 is one of the most sought-after among her production and I'm the happy owner of four Harlekiini items: water jug. juice jug, creamer and liquor decanter.

Both design and colour are striking and were absolutely innovative at the time.

    Thanks so much, ho2cultcha! I'm both cataloguing my glass collection and working on a website displaying it and these are part of the pictures that I'll show there, that's why I'm taking special care in the photos :) I'm glad you like them!

    Thanks so much for your love, racer!

    There's one more jug to be included in the group (http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/109465-christmas-presents-2013?in=user).

    I never thought I would get many of these, as they are a bit pricey, but it seems that, appart from the double vinegar&ild ones, there are only two more jgs to have them all :)

    very nice indeed
    i once owned the harlekiini oil vinegar bottle
    that must be 4-5years ago
    a shame i've sold it
    you've got a great collection indeed

    i'm poor & laisy....
    i've sold so many nice things to pay my bills
    but it's ok
    actually i'm a more a hunter not a collector
