Something rather 'modern' for me!

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!

It isn't a known shape for Nanny Still, but it could be Tamara Aladin.  :)

Thanks for the links Robbo, I liked them!  :D

Thanks, Tmaritta, I did that, and that's where I saw my vase attributed to Tamara Aladin, but it was by Amy of Amy's Attique (who is a dealer) and I didn't know iif she was an expert or not  :oops:  :roll:

Max, you speak with authority about the designs attributed to Nanny Still.  Can you suggest a link which I could explore, or do I need to buy another glass book?  :roll:  :wink:

RAY:

LOL!  Yeah, it's not often, is it?!  I quite shocked myself!  Ha ha!  :lol:  :lol:

I'm in VERY grave danger of becoming a bore about this book, I saw it at Ivo's house and it was a little awkward to get hold of. It's called Designlasin Hintakirja.  It's got all the known works of (deep breath here) Kaj Franck, Saara Hopea, Gunnel Nyman, Timo Sarpaneva, Nanny Still, Helena Tynell & Tapio Wirkkala in it.

It's a pesky little book with hundreds of black and white sketches (no photos) of their work, and it does rather do your eyes in after a while  :lol: But it's great for seeing who did what or didn't.

I think you can only get it direct from the Finnish Glass Museum, but I have the contact details if anyone wants them.  I think it was about £40.

I also asked the Museum if they had any books on Tamara Aladin, but they didn't.  :(  She does feature in some of their books, but there isn't one soley devoted to her work.  Annoying huh?   :roll:

Max, sounds like a fantastic reference. Have you got the contact details, or are they on the website?
