It's 4" tall, just over 3" wide, and it glows brightly under UV.  

The only other vase I have seen with nipples like this one have been described, hopefully accurately, as Riihimaen, such as this one...

Any help appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Stu.

Hi Stu,
it´s a Kehrä vase by Tamara Aladin; they come in two sizes: the one in
the ebay-auction and yours.

Nice one - I like the scandi uranium pieces! (actually I do like ALL uranium
pieces)   ;D

Thanks Dirk - it's good to know I got something out of a boring family outing today!  I will be putting it on ebay sometime soon... that's if it doesn't grow on me more before then.

Thanks again - I really appreciate it.

The type in the ebay auction I think also comes in two heights, the difference being in the height of the textured base section.

Or am I barking up the wrong tree again, did I dream that? ::)

John, I stand corrected. You´re absolutely right - they come in different heights: 20 & 25cm.  :thup:

Good, I thought I was going a bit senile when I could not find a reference to the different sizes in print or anywhere I looked on line. :D
