These three jugs belong to the German brand Wiesenthalhütte that's one of my all time favourite German glass brands because of its amazing designs, so close to those in Scandinavia: simple, geometric shapes, pure colours...

The blue one is a design by H.H. Engler from 1961; the tall red one is a design by Klaus Breit from 1957 (and very simmilar to Kaj franck's Kartio), and the third one was designed by one of them, but cannot remember who... there is a Wiesenthalhütte book (the catalogue for a big exhibition held a couple of years ago) where I know it appears but... so far no access to that info. I hope I'll find out soon, cause it really is a nice design.

    I love your pictures, and I share your predilections. I'll post, hoepefully, some German pieces in the days to come, pieces by Klaus Breit and Josef Stadler.

    The third one is designed by Klaus Breit in 68 and was first produced in 1969 until 72 - so it's rare. It was produced in "granate" red and in cristal clear. Engler only worked in the first years (until 62 or 63) in the Wiesethalhuette, but he made very beautiful designs.

    Thanks so much cobaltcobold!!!! When I bought it -from a German webshop- it was marked as Kaj Franck's...

    About the colours in which the third model comes I have to say I have seen one in opaline, pretty much like the Jacob Bang opaline glass for Kastrup (but I have to say, the clear glass one must look amazing with red wine inside :) )

    Danke schön!
