If some look similar to Nuutajarvi, it's because they used to blow glass for Gunnel Nyman before setting up on their own - I believe there were design copyright issues for a while.

thanks Gareth -  appreciate the information.    I am very new to Finnish glass, so forgive me if I am a little slow at absorbing some of the details.  I hope I can find more at the boot sales.     cheers             Paul S.
