Nuutajarvi "Saara Hopea Glass 1718M" Saara Hopea Vintage Glass

Founded in Nuutajärvi, Finland in 1793, it is the oldest glass manufacturer in Finland.
Although Nuutajarvi has been around for over 200 years, it has had various histories.
In 1950, the factory burned down. The owner at that time did not have the financial strength to rebuild the factory, and Nuutajarvi was sold to Wartsila, a company famous for ARABIA. With this acquisition Nuutajärvi's products will be sold under the ARABIA-Wartsila brand.
After this merger in 1950, Nuutajärvi's products boomed, partly due to the presence of Kaj Franck, who became an art director.
Oiva Toikka joined the company in 1962. I built a golden age with Kaj Franck.
Although it merged with iittala in 1988, Nuutajärvi products are very popular and there are many collectors around the world.
