Kekkerit..? Sarpaneva..? water goblet.
« on: August 24, 2009, 10:09:10 AM »
Could anyone help me to determine if the glasses, I bought on eBay, are authentic. They were listed as Kekkerit water goblets, and they look exactly as the picture on Replacements.com, the size is also as described (sorry, I cannot attach the photograph because of the technical problems}.
  The reason, which makes me doubt, is very simple: I do not like the quality and the colour of the glass. It looks and feels like bottle glass; the colour is a little bit blueish, definitely different from the colour of other Iittala glasses I own. Has anyone come across fakes? Please help if you know the answer. Thanks, Guzel.

we're not clairvoyant here - so please try and get a picture. Or at least a link to the auction, if it is still there.
