Riihimäki Vase
« on: March 27, 2007, 09:34:22 AM »
Just wondering if anyone knew the designer / approximate year of design for the vase below? I'm sure that it's been mentioned before, but the site's search option seems to be down at the moment.

VASE

Thanks in advance.  :)

It is - but I can't find the thread I was thinking of. Doh.  :(

Of course, it could be entirely likely that I made the thread up in my head. Sillier things have been known!

Sorry I can't help Nic - it's not a shape I've had so I haven't got any old sales records to refer to.  I'll keep my eyes open though just in case I see one somewhere.

Thanks.  :) That was going to be my guess too.

Is it actually part of the Export Collection, or is it speculation?

Thanks for that - have spotted a taller, greener verson of my vase, but beyond saying that it's an Aladin design it does doesn't give any further informaton.

The site is definitely going in my bookmarks, though.  :)

Hi Nic, I would have said Aladin from 1976 but I've not actually seen one this exact shape ever being attributed to her. I've got the taller one that's documented in the books - Palo, have you ever actually seen this smaller one attributed anywhere to Tamara Aladin - or is it a guess?
