It is quite complicated...

After Riihimäen Lasi stopped blowing glass the workers seem to have worked all over for different companies. Here's a link to one professional who has worked for Jussis Keramik Oy (Jussi's Glass) in Tervakoski and Ahvenanmaa (=Maarianhamina). And has his own studio in Riihimäki again.

I know, it is in Finnish but you might get something out of it using a translator, if you wish.

I bought a Jussis Glas bird the other day and it came in its original box. The details on it may be of interest.

I suppose it is a blue swan? (as it says so handwritten, in Finnish :) )

Thanks for the translation. I must say it doesn't much look like a swan and it's grey! Perhaps, then, not the original box.
