Unusual, heavy Humppila Crystal Vase
« on: May 20, 2009, 10:17:57 PM »
Does anyone have any idea what this vase might be? The sticker says Humppila Crystal Finland, but I have never seen any Humppila or Kumela vase like this one. The vase is about 9" tall, 8" wide and 4" deep and weighs over 3 pounds!

I would be inclined to trust the sticker, looks like a nice vase to me. I have not seen one before but that is no surprise.

Thanks, John  :)

I just bought this vase on my trip to Finland and I do believe the sticker is original... just really curious who's design that is?!
