    Not long ago I posted here the pictures of two simmilar designs by Vallien (http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/48987-2-jugs-designed-by-bertil-vallien-boda?in=user), and not long after I did it I was able to find this one. Although there's no designer's name on the sticker I saw a picture of a simmilar smaller one (this one stands 25 cm. tall whereas the smaller one was just 15) with Vallien's name on it.

    What I love from these designs is that they're heavily inspired by the Spanish traditional wine bottle called porrón.

    Also Bengt Orup designed a piece inspired in the "porrón" in 1952, and he called it Porro.

      And it's practical. You don't need a glass anymore!

      haha, but your shirts will probably get very dirty! :)
