Tamara Aladin Kleopatra jug.
« on: March 03, 2009, 08:24:59 PM »
Hi,
I am sure Pip will know this.
Is there an opaque version of this jug?
I saw one in an Antique shop recently and wondered whether it might be a copy. The colour was a pastel green shade and the interior a glaring white. The piece was near mint and looked really good. I have heard that there have been pastel copies of Holmegaard and Arthur Percy coming out of the East so could this be one as well?
I am tempted to buy it.
Cheers,
Bryn

I've had a handful of Kleopatra jugs in the past - never heard of an opal cased one, nor am I aware of this kind of colour combination in the Riihimaki palette (not that I'm an expert).

Hi Nic,
I agree it was new to me as well. I wondered if it could have come from another Scandi company, my heart says possibly but my head points me towards China. It is quite cheap at just £8 so I may well take a punt. If I do buy it I'll upload a photo.

Cheers,
Bryn

Hi Bryn, I agree with Nic, as far as I know there's no opal cased version of the Kleopatra jug  - so not Riihimaki I'd say - perhaps from the Far East or mainland Italy maybe?

Thanks Pip, that's good enough for me to leave it where it is. :thup:
It does look very new and probably is.
Cheers,
Bryn
