Something rather 'modern' for me!

(1/3) > >>

Leni:
I can't help it, I'm an 'old fashioned girl'  :wink:  :lol: so my latest acquisition seems very 'modern' to me!  (Although it does actually seem to have a fair bit of wear on the base, so I guess it's been dragged around the yard a bit in its time   :twisted: )

Can anyone tell me what it is?  And don't anyone say "it's a vase"  :twisted: http://tinypic.com/ehx56c.jpg

It looked Scandi to me, but as you all know, that's not my area - except that I now own (as well as my foreshortened Bo Borgstrom  :cry: ) a 'bamboo' vase and another which PT tells me is a Tamara Alladin!   :shock: What's happening to me!  :shock:

I just liked the colour  :roll:

Leni,

Your vase is by Riihimäen Lasi, possibly by Tamara Aladin, but I don't have any proof of that.  Probably from 70's.

Leni:
Is there anywhere I can find examples of Tamara Aladin's designs to see if mine might be one?

Leni,

Your vase looks the right colour for Riihimäen, and this shape usually seems to be described as such, attributed to Tamara Aladin (or sometimes Nanny Still). Without a catalogue, I'm sure we'll never know for sure!

There are a fair few other Aladin designs here:
