Riihimaki Lasi OY - no idea who designed it or when, though.

Technically speaking it should be Riihimäen Lasi O.Y. I believe.  I'll move it over to Scandi for you to see if anyone can help with a designer or pattern name.

Drat - I knew I'd end up picking the wrong one. Never actually owned any signed glass from the factory, and the photo is a little indistinct at that point.  ::)

When I said the photograph is indistinct I mean around the end of the word 'Riihimaen', and I mistakenly said it was Riihimaki. That's all. :)

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfngt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben sprt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfllt, und ein offeneres Verstndnis fr die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)
