Please can anyone confirm that the following is NOT from a Scandinavian manufacturer?

Four-part mould with top-ring.
Just trying to eliminate manufacturers such as Riihimaki.
TIA,
Marcus

the deafening silence continues. Never seen this one but I could imagine Italian, French or Austrian as well.

Hi Marcus,
It isn't shown in Designlasin hintakirja. I have also had a look around various sites and not found one like it.
Sorry I can't be of more assistance.  :'(
Enjoying being in the Midlands.......some people are just amazing....

Thanks to both of you.

I think I know what this is, and probably the designer, but as yet, I have no documentary evidence to back this up.
The reason for eliminating the Scandinavian connection, is that recently I discovered a "Praha" look-alike pattern from one of the Finnish companies. That being the case, I am trying to make sure this pattern was not from one of the Scandinavian pressed glass manufacturers.

Do these turn up in the Netherlands?

Thanks again and regards,

Marcus
