Help please to ID this large vaseline glass vase, my first thoughts were Scandinavian possibly Riihimaki but cannot find anything similar, I am sure it will be quickly ID by someone.

Height just under 10" or 25cm, weight over 2.5 kg

Thanks for any help Roy

Hi Roy,
you´re spot on. It´s Tamara Aladin ´Rondella´.
Cheers,
Dirk

1968-1971 PRESTO by Tamara Aladin seems to have the same basic shape.
