I know this is from the Flora range by Oiva Toikka, but have forgotten which factory made it and roughly when.

As to this one http://tinypic.com/2mcnrc I have always assumed it is Fauna by Oiva Toikka but again don't know the full details. This one is not as fine as the turquoise one so I have always assumed it is more recent.

Someone out there must know and its probably Ivo!

Flora was designed for Nuutajärven Lasi in 1966.  It must be still in production as I bought 4 glasses just last year from a shop in Finland, and they were new.

Fauna is by Oiva Toikka as well, produced for Iittala according to one source I found in internet.  However, Nuutajärven Lasi belongs now to the same group as Iittala, e.g. Toikka's famous birds, initially produced for Nuutajärven Lasi, now carry Iittala's sticker as well.

Fauna Range

Hello Adam & T,

My book states that this range was introduced in 1970.

While we are on this subject I have seen "Cascade" labels on the Dewdrop range. Is it an importer's name?
Mod: split out to new topic
