Purple Jug & Glasses Set w/ Triangular Label: Riihimäki?

Follow up:

By sheer coincidence I showed the photo to a fellow glass-o-holic in a little comparing session, and it turns out he has exactly the same water set, with all the Riihimäen Lasi labels all in-tact. Hurray.

I don't suppose it's very likely that two identical generic water sets would have Riihimäen Lasi labels falsely stuck on them and then sent off to different countries? Well, I guess stranger things have happened....  :D  ...but circumstance seems to point in my favour for once!

Nic,

Great to get a positive id :D  :D  :D .
I suppose the next thing is to determine the designer... :?:

A waterset back in it's rightful place in id'd land!

For now I'm just happy enough to have pinned it down with 99% certainty to Riihimäen Lasi - I'll worry about who designed it next year, I think!  :lol:

I've decided anyway, 2006 shall be the year of old catalogue purchasing for me! No more umming and erring, I want to be able to point at a photograph and a year and a designer and not have to hurt my brain ever again! Well, as little as possible, anyway! :D

Thankfully Holmegaard are reprinting theirs! That's about 75% of my collecting habit dealt with!
