Moar Romantica!

The Iittala Romantica collection is growing. In addition to the mini-coupes and bigger coupes (on the left), today the post delivered sets of wine and water goblets (right). Or red and white wine glasses... Although they might occasionally hold cocktails, too!

The Romantica line was designed by Tapio Wirkkala in 1963 and produced until 1972. It came in 4, 6, 8, 15, 17, and 25 cl sizes. [Those equal about 1.4, 2, 2.7, 5, 5.7, and 8.5 ounces. In addition to the stemmed glasses, the line also included stemless old-fashioneds.]

New Elle Bowl

Found this pretty Elle bowl today, along with a big Elle mixing bowl that was more than I wanted to spend!

The bottom is marked 703/R21.
