Yes they were made at Riihimaki, 'cam shaft' is an ebay name, I do not know who the designer was having seen a variety of attributions given in the past.

Yours is a single colour (all I have seen are) the difference in colour is due to varying thicknesses of the glass.

One of my favourite Riihimaki designs....

John.

(do you mean 28cm high, otherwise can I buy your special mini one)

Hi John
Designlasi has it down as her- and they're very unlikely to misattribute.

No problem
It's a great website run by a lovely guy!
The forum posts are often in Finnish, but don't be afraid to post in English-
The Finns speak better English than we do Finnish ;)

they do,and they speak with an american accent.my brother lives in finland with his finnish girlfriend.i'm off to see them in a couple of weeks,so i will have to purchase lots more loveley riihimaki and iittala glass.i'm hoping to buy a busy lizzie(akherlisa),or some of the piku matti range,and some more of the kekerrit glass range.
and hopefully a trip to riihimaki itself and go to the finnish glass museum.
