Stunningly simple. That was the premise behind iittala's essence collection and the new 2009 introduction of the set of two essence cocktail bowl. Part of a full stemware collection, these cocktail bowls can be used for any number of drinks and champagnes. Plus, with the glasses standing next to each other they create a wonderful sense of balance. This stem is a pleasure to drink from. Also a fun stem to present dessert in such as a compote or sorbet. Made in Denmark. Only from iittala.
