There are ten of these stackers. They arrived home in two separate deals. Check out how they fit together! The blue is a very dark grey blue.
I'd supposed them to be large Kartios by Kaj Franck but ......
They are 10 cm high and 8.5 across.
I really need some input from austro on these. Already he had made a comment: "At the same glass book I used before there is a Nuutajärvi Notsjö 20 cl glass (I guess it's a KF's design) with two numbers: either 67B (12cl Kartio is 58/58B) or 2746 (12 cl Kartio is 2744). The drawing showing it shows the same propotions of yours, but there's no way to know its height.
He has a copy of a book called SUOMALAISTA LASIA/FINKST GLAS/FINNISH GLASS, which is a compilation of catalogues/brochures from Iittala, Nuutajarvi Notsjo and Rihhimäki from the 50s (published by the Riihimäki Finnish Glass Museum in 2004)

    Hi Amber! 9.42 Tuesday and am doing the early morning post. It's raining so I'm about to rug up and head south on the buses. Five stores today. Will probably get nothing but it's really about getting out and doing things with a purpose. These glasses are a bit of fun, though; I learn something new on this site every day. You live, you learn. Hope you're all well. Summer is nearly upon you!

    Hot as heck this long weekend. 100F ! BBQs like crazy, I am ready for a couple of days of salad! I have "left it at the thrift" remorse so I will try and see if it is still there tomorrow. Good luck on your hunt! Bring back a Woolly Mamoth!

    Iittala has lately reissued the Kartio glasses in their original handblown look (which will make collectors a bit more confused). In any case, they use the 58/58B or 2744 shape.

    Thanks marty and the Kartio thing gets more involved. I think I got a little one today.
