Iittala Maribowl

Iittala-rose-olive-maribowl-155-mm 
Iittala’s Maribowl is a classic of Finnish design, having been in production since the 1960s, and also has associations with that other great Finnish design company, Marimekko, as its founder , Armi Ratia, made the bowls even more desirably by using them at her famous garden parties.

Perhaps some of the Maribowl’s continued popularity is that it works as either a decorative item or a functional serving bowl – I’m picturing it filled with a huge ice cream sundae. It is available in a variety of different colours with the price being dependent on how difficult it to manufacture glass in that colour, red being the most tricky pigment to use.

Prices range from £16 for smaller Maribowls in shades of blue, green and grey through to £49 for a deep red colour, with shades of yellow, orange and brown priced somewhere in between, at Hus and Hem.
