This ones are called pinottava ('stacking' in Finnish), because you can stack them one on top of the other, that's why they have that funny shape at the bottom for.

They have a different size.

Vetraio50 posted a picture with two of these in purple (http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/24991-timo-sarpaneva-orkidea-and-pinottava-pullo), so I'm dedicating this picture to him.

    Fabulous!
    Have you seen Meydam's stackers? You probably heave them!

    I wish I had those. I once saw them on ebay but couldn't bid enough for them :/

    I wish I owned a blue, green or red one.

    Well... getting the red one is like a huge goal for almost anybody, isn't it?
    Green? What kind of green? mmmmmh, interesting! LOL
  5. GlasswareGuy GlasswareGuy, 2 years ago
    Well, in the book it looks like an olive green, but it can also be grey I guess..
    Anyway, it's a nice set to have either way..

    Which book, GlasswareGuy?
    What were the original colours?
    In the Harrison Barr book there is an early photo of twenty of them. One in amethyst, three in red and sixteen in clear.
    Have they been re-issued recently? I remember seeing something about it.
    Laatutavaara has a blue one at the moment.

    "Timo Sarpaneva - Collection" by Designmuseo, Finland
    I picked it up at the museum when we were visiting Helsinki last year.
    The original colours are clear, ruby and i-colours.
    But there's a picture in the book, 3 stacked on top of each other, green (or grey, i cant tell), red and blue. It looks amazing!

    Many thanks for the info, GG!

    I think I know the grey/green you mention.
  10. austrohungaro austrohungaro, 2 years ago
    I should get that book!!! Thanks GlaswareGuy -GG from now on LOL-!

    I've always wanted to get one more of these in purple or red, so I can stack them on top of each other...
