Hi folks I thought you might like to see my latest charity shop find.

http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-7558

It is signed to the base "AIMO OKKOLIN RIIHIMAEN LASI OY" the photos do not do the colour justice as it is a beautiful citrine yellow it is very heavy at 2.83kg it measures 21cm across and stands 10cm high.

I paid £40 for it but I think it is well worth it.

Gorgeous, Ian! Are all the surfaces cut and polished?

Ian, are you aware of our brand-new shiny Scandinavian forum? :D

If there are no objections I will move it there.

Ian, what an amazing object.  Quite different from the Aimo Okkolin designs I'm familiar with and such a beautiful colour - worth every penny I'd say - well done!

Hi David, no I do not have any objections to this being moved.

Until you said Cathy I had assumed it to be moulded albeit highly polished, however after your enquiry I have studied it in much more detail and yes all the surfaces do appear to be cut and polished.

Hi Ian,

Beautiful vase and congratulations with the purchase!
It's a very desirable piece of Aimo Okkolin and much more worth than GBP 40!

Regards,
