Help needed !!!
This tumbler looks like a Prisma tumbler 6060, but is it?
Today I found five of them in an original box.
One had been broken.
The box however does not mention Prisma.
Instead it has Helsinki.
There is also a label over the Nuutajärvi mark on the box. It includes a different number: 6 - 5050 5 oz.
You can read underneath the label: 6 - 5050 - 015 6 oz.
I loved the box too !!!
There is mention of 5050 here ... At the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm ... But no picture
Dricksglas "Prisma", modell 5050
Dimensions: (h x diam) 6,6 x 7,5 cm
Design: Kaj Franck, Finnish, born 1911, dead 1989
Manufacturer: Notsjö glasbruk, Nuutajärvi, Finland
Is this glass 5050 different from the Prisma 6060 ?
To my eye Fasetti has only one optic rib to the top.
Prisma has three equal ribbed sections.
This one (Helsinki) has three unequal ribbed sections. The mid one is bigger.
