It could be from the Tornado range by Tamara Aladin, although I'm not sure there is a range, but it might be a starting point

I'm sure I've seen this in one of my books but unfortunately I've lent a few out to my sister in law so I can't check them right now.

Can't find it but the deep aquamarine was a Riihimaki colour

Thanks for your help.

I have seen it somwhere but I have had every book off the shelf to no avail.
In my mind I keep getting glimpses of the page it's on but it just wont register, must be getting old. :cry:

I feel this is more likely to be Aseda..there's something about the way the colour stops abruptly at the foot that makes me think Bo Borgstrom....
Or even SEA ..???

Tamara Aladin is the designer and the manufacturer is Riihimäki.

Few links where to find Lots of Glass designed by tamara. Unfortunately the pages are in finnish. (Riihimäki is in Finland)

I should add, I'm not unwilling to believe is it Riihimaki and by Tamara Aladin, just stylistically, the flat square edged foot, which looks applied, is unlike any Tamara Aladin, or Riihimaki I have seen.
Sure, there are similarities to Riihimaki pieces, including the Hurricane vases- but they have a rounded edge to the foot, which is much thicker, and the transition in the casing is more organic and softer...
