Scandi or Sklo? Or what? - ID = Riihimäki by Aladin
« on: February 17, 2008, 06:32:44 PM »
I'm sure I've seen one like this before.  Racked my brains, but I can't remember!  :huh:  (And my searching was a bit hit or miss  :-[  ::))

When I first saw it I thought it might be Scandi, then I picked it up and saw the base, and I thought it might be Sklo (or am I in danger of making the the same sort of ID which says, "It has a polished pontil mark, therefore it is obviously Whitefriars!  :D ;)

TTBOMK Riihimäki by Aladin - I'm sure someone will chime in with year and production number.

I agree with Ivo, Leni. I don't have a production number for this piece yet (or this piece  :cry: ), but probably made round about 1976.
Enjoying being in the Midlands.......some people are just amazing....

Thank you, Ivo and Della  :-*

I am very pleased with myself, because when I first saw it I said to the dealer, "That looks like it could be Riihimaki!  Is it by Tamara Aladin, do you know?"  She looked at me as if I had just grown a second head, and said, "I have no idea!  You sound like you're the expert!"  :o  ;D 
Me!  An expert!  LOL!  :chky:

It was only when I picked it up and looked at the base that I began to doubt my first thoughts.  I should learn to trust my instincts, I guess  :angel:  :D
