Surely Riihimaki?
« on: April 21, 2008, 05:50:16 PM »
This is a vase I picked up earlier today at a local Junk/ secondhand store. I thought immediately it was Riihimaki but on consulting my Scandinavian glass reference books I am unable to find it.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks again.

Bryn

I'd think Aseda, Bo Borgström.

Hi Bryn

I have a  rather  large Riihmaki collection  :D

The pic is mostly of the export pieces.

Large collection Robert? That's a HUGE collection. Fantastic.  :hiclp:
Do you know who designed them all as well?

I have just one other from your display, the fifth from the left on the middle row, that too came from a junk shop, it was cheap but very dirty inside and I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to get it clean, but it really
cleaned up well.
I have an array of soft bottle brushes and they and Fairy Power did the job.
I can imagine a lot of members using your massive collection for reference. I dare not ask if you collect other colours as well :o.
Many thanks again for your help,
Bryn

Hi Bryn
 There's lots more!

I can post more pics later here.. if that's allowed, or is there somewhere to post pics of one's collections?

(I'm new here! )   :D

Hi Robert - I've long drooled over your incredibly impressive collections of Scandi glass - I've seen them on your eBay ME page or on one of your listings in the past I think :-)
