An olive green pitcher by Timo Sarpaneva for Iittala, Finland. 

This elegant modernist carafe was designed circa 1960 as part of Sarpaneva's 'i' series of fine table glassware. The popular series included a number of coloured pitchers and drinking glasses.

This carafe features an exaggerated, flattened form with a long cylindrical neck. The object's bold style is amplified by the depth and richness of the green coloured glass. 

Iittala's famous red 'i' logo was designed by Timo Sarpaneva for the 'i' series which this carafe belongs to. The logo was later adopted by the company as their main branding, and is still in use today.
