Riihimaki ? Pompadour ?
I'm confused because I have seen Pompadour items simlar to this but also others very different.
Thanks
Ed

Hi Ed,
Yes, Pompadour, designed by Nanny Still and depicted on pg.229 of Designlasin hintakirja (alongside a Pagoda) and also 3 other varieties shown on pg 232 of the same book.

Very nice  :D

Thanks very much Deltab. I haven't seen it in yellow before either.

I just wanted to say that another reason why I doubted that it was Riihimaki is because the glass seems better quality and heavier than the other 2 Riihimaki pieces I have as I see you guys have been talking about that. I even think it may have some lead content but I'm not sure about that - it just seems so bright. Another thing is that the colour goes all the way down to the base - no clear layer. Ed.

Hi Ed,
I do know that Riihimaen Lasi did produce solid colours, yellow being one of them. The piece you show is a Pomapdour candle holder as opposed to the solifleur vase. I have not yet seen one in a solid colour either (appart from colourless), but I presume that they were made.
The Pompadour vase and candlestick are pictured together on pg.217 of Andy McConnell's book, but both are cased.
I wish that I could be of more help.  :-\

Gosh ! That's more than enough Thanks Deltab
Candle-holder ok that makes a lot of sense.
I wasn't doubting your first reply. I just wanted you to know that I a,m also finding these differences like other have noticed. Ed.

I didn't think that you were doubting my reply, Ed  ;) I too am really curious  ??? I actually have about 70 Riihimaen pieces, some signed, some not, some labelled, some not, some extrememly thick glass and some really quite delicate.
I know that David555 (Adam P) was doing a little research into the thickness of certain Riihimaen vases, but he hasn't been around for ages.

Hi
This piece is Nuuttajarvi Nostjo designed by Oiva Toikka.
The rim is shorter to that of the Pompadour, these pieces often get classed as Riihimaki.
They are very similar in looks and as you say, the glass is thicker than Riihimaki Pompador.

I'm voting with Della on this one. As Della has said, the candleholder is shown in Designlasin as Nanny Still Pompadour / Riihimäki. In addition these rectangular blue & white "Made in Finland" labels have been discussed here before, in relation to Riihimäki. I have one on an Aimo Okkolin vase.

Nuutajärvi did produce a turn-mould blown candlestick Pikku Majakka designed by Oiva Toikka, produced 1967-71.

Designlasi also have a vase on "Tiimalasi" vase by Nanny Still this one was designed by Tamara Aladin.
Even the experts get it wrong sometimes.
