Stogo Viking

This was an impulsive eBay buy - I didn't know anything about Stogo, but thought he was pretty fun. He looks like he would be a bobble-head, but the head is fixed to the base. A few quick googles showed that Stogo made a lot of dish ware in the 1960s. The bottom is marked with the company name an Denmark.

Magisso Teacup

I've been eyeing this teacup for a while now and finally bought it last week from Finnstyle in Minneapolis. You put loose tea in the mesh "shelf" and tilt the cup towards it to brew the tea; then you tilt it the other way to stop the brewing and drink. It actually works great! And it's a fun, stylish, and practical design - it has it all.

It was designed by Vesa Jääskö and Laura Bougdanos.

Iittala Essence Coupes

I have wanted a set of coupe glasses for years, but it has been hard finding the perfect ones. I saw that Iittala came out with a coupe a while back and, combined with our new cocktail book, it was finally time to get them.
