Great decorative and functional design by Kaj Franck for Nuutajarvi Notsjo. Translucent amethyst bulbous cup tapering to narrower short cylindrical neck. Narrow hollow applied blue midsection joins amethyst portion to cylindrical transparent amber/tortoise shell portion of stem, which widens into hollow disk foot; transparent amber/tortoise shell glass is coated with applied silver lustre that appears blue. The style name is Pokaali, and although primarily decorative was also meant to be used as a goblet. Based on the size I think one drink would be enough per guest (or two can share!). The goblet measures 8 1/4 inches (20.9 cm) tall and is 6 1/2 inches (16.5 cm) in diameter; the foot measures 4 inches (10.2 cm) in diameter. The strong colors, though contrasting, are pleasing, not garish. The piece is mouth blown and hand finished. No chips, cracks or repairs. Signed. Design year 1965. Circa 1970.
