Riihimäki trademark
« on: April 09, 2005, 11:38:57 AM »
I have noted that a number of contributors on the message board collect Riihimäki glass. I am an avid collector of Riihimäki Carnival Glass, and I would like to know if any of you have come across a moulded trademark that features the company's logo (the Häme lynx) and the word Riihimäki?

Hartmann lists three similar, two from the 1930, and one from 1950/80.

The first two have the word 'RIIHIMÄKI' under the lynx and the latter circling it 'RIIHIMÄEN LAS OY FINLAND', also used the word RIIHIMÄKI on its own, straight or in a circle.

Frank - thank you. Mine has the lynx with simply RIIHIMÄKI under it. I had assumed it was from the 1930s (as that is when they made Carnival), so your info backs that up. Thank you.

On some of our Carnival examples we also have the single word RIIHIMÄKI, on its own, straight.

One other trademark they used (seen on some Carnival) is a single letter R.

Frank - thanks - what a lovely selection of photos of the Museum. The only section they didn't show was the glass showcase for the Carnival Glass. Coincidentally, that's the only showcase I DO show in my article.  :lol: Wonder why? :lol:

Absolutely Frank - though I will admit to having LOOKED at the rest of the Museum - and enjoyed eating in their delightful cafe. (Though the last time we were there I went bustling into the cafe, only to be pulled up in my tracks when I discovered I was gate crashing a very formal private party.  :oops: Unfortunately my Finnish doesn't extend to the words "private party - no entry".  :oops: )

The Riihimaki museum occupies the former Riihimaki glassworks. It is two floors high and has a large and airy exhibition area. In the basement are displays of old presses and moulds: the ground floor has the shop and display area, and upstairs is more exhibition/display area. It's a great place to visit. An hour's drive away is the Iittala Museum - also worth a visit. Doubly so as there is a hand made chocolate shop on site  :lol:
