    No doubt this jug was based in the succesful KARTIO design by Kaj Franck, but in this case it's an absolutely beautiful design. i love the shae of it, just like a funnel upside-down.

      How many pieces do hyou have Austro? The prettiness keeps going and going. Do you have a spare house to store/display? My hubby is giving the the hairy eyeball right now and using the word "hoarder". I might have to pare it down soon. How do you "get away with it"?

      Mmmm... I just counted them... there's little more than 1100 glass items, including every single glass from the different jug+glasses sets I've got...

      How do I get away with a partner calling me hoarder? well, he's a glass/ceramics/art nouveau/Gio Ponti/60's plastic furniture collector himself so he has no right to "call me names"... :)
