Poli or Bratt?

Is it a Flavio Poli design or should I be looking at Reijmyre/Sweden instead?

Hi Ivo,

Does it have to be poli or Scandi?  It doesn't look like Poli to me. However, it does look as though it were made in Murano. Is it cased? What does the base look like?

Not a Poli design I've come across, and single coloured would also be somewhat unusual. Looks more Scandi to me.

Thank you Laura, thank you Paul - looks like it is Reijmyre then!

To me it looked the most logical choice, either Poli or Scandi because the colour matches exactly a Monica Bratt piece and a Poli corroso I have
It is a single solid red colour, not cased; the pontil mark is neatly polished out; the stopper is hollow blown and finished off by grinding smooth.

Just to be certain - this is a triangular corroso vase in solid red. According to my information it is a Poli design - or not?????
