Just in case it was missed...

I don't suppose anyone could hazard a guess as to the designer of m[y water set]? Pretty please?  :)


Yes, I know, I'm terrible and impatient!  :twisted:

I could hazard a guess, but it would be wrong. Possibly, Polish???????

I thought we'd already established Riihimäen Lasi as manufacturer? Or did I mistake the puns as confirmation? Ah, I'm not on the ball this week!  :(  hehe

Krosno, it's the dumping ground of the [unidentified] Scandi glass world.


Still stands true, though!  :lol:

My intention was to suggest that Riihimäen Lasi may be a possibility, based on the shape of the label residue and that the design, maybe, is not untypical. Unless someone has something like a trade catalogue with the set in, or, at the least, we see one fully stickered (and even this isn't a gaurantee), we can't be sure of who made it.

TMaritta, thanks for the info on Huuto.

Hi.

I assumed that Ivo had confirmed the manufacturer - possibly my bad!  :oops:

The kindly folk of Tyrone Crystal might disagree with you...!  :)

Hi Nic,

As far as I can see, Ivo was just punning around! ID on this set still seems to be pretty tentative.

I'm wary of attributing anything on the basis of colour and vague similarity alone. Most of the glass I'm studying here in Australia has been copied from elsewhere. The Australian market in the 1930s was flooded with imports, and Crown Crystal made their own copies to compete. It's an art tell which are which from the catalogues, mould forms, etc - especially since the Australian mould makers weren't so particular about getting the sizes precisely as ordered.

Robbo - if you have the exact measurements of the label, maybe it would add a bit more evidence one way or the other (but you're still a long way off proof).  

Vidfletch, can you add to or contradict this?

Cheers,
Cathy.

Hi Cathy,

You wrote: "if you have the exact measurements of the label, maybe it would add a bit more evidence one way or the other (but you're still a long way off proof)."

A good point, and to go with it, a cautionary note. Recently I received an image of three vases, one clearly bearing a "Bohemia" glass label. Proof-positive? Hardly, when all three vases were scandinavian, two clearly Riihimaki and the third probably from the same factory. I think the label had been re-used, to try to improve a price at auction.

Regards,

Marcus
