    The original KARTIO or 2744 glasses were first made in 1953 and they were mouthblown, but as soon as 1958 they started making machine made versions of it, although in fact it seems they made a completely new glass which is today know as KARTIO, but also as 5027 or TEEMA. So it was made to match the TEEMA (or KILTA) dinnerware series.

    They were into production from 1958 to 1975, then in 1982 and then since 1993 till today, when they are absolutely best-sellers all round the world. The original mouthblown ones have also been reissued in 2011, but they are not into production any longer.

    These two 36 cl. glasses were bought in Stockholm in 1960 by my ex's parents for their Mallorca house. They were given to me as a present in 1999 as they were the last two remaining from a whole set. I am prettu sure they are original KARTIO/TEEMA glasses. The shape and colours match with those of Nuutajarvi at the time.

      Ditto. They are different to those we bought in 2000. These colours are more subtle. I bet the weight will be lighter too!

      Well, I can tell you about it... let's see: the green ones, 220 gr. each, as well as the light blue one. The clear one is 210 gr. The grey blue one from the second group weighs 200 gr. and the others 210 gr. each. I guess is due more to the different minerals used for each different colour than to the fact of being old or new... :) (I think it's crazy I am weighing the glass items in my collection too! LOL)

      Hi austro.. The weight does seem to change with colour. It was really quite noticeable on these two Sarpaneva 2518 i-linja bottle vases. The 'lila' was heavier:
      Weight of items 550 grams & 920 grams. Same shape different colour.
