A wine carafe & six wine glasses from the 'Harlekiini' (Harlequin) series designed by Nanny Still in 1958 for Riihimäen Lasi Oy, Finland.

Nanny Still's 'Harlekiini' series is perhaps her most renowned design. The full collection includes around 24 elements, such as decanters, jugs, and jars, with each piece composed from precise geometric shapes in turquoise glass. Most items from the series are stemmed with clear glass, lending both a boldness and elegance to the range. The 'Harlekiini' series embodies Nanny Still's confident sense of form, and the range was the beginning of Still's experimentations with colour, which she continued for the rest of her career in glass. 

This set includes a stemmed, bulbous carafe & six wine glasses. Each piece has been expertly handblown from vibrant turquoise-blue glass. The cylindrical shape of each glass echoes the neck of the carafe. This scalloped and handless carafe iteration is the rarest within the 'Harlekiini' series.
