..... Now I am wondering, if this funny prunty/bubbly texture was produced in many models quite but not exactly the same?  Now this would make three models: the one confirmed 1434, Ivo's and mine ? What do you think?

I re-checked with this helpful person who happens to possess a copy of the 1967 product list. The answer was:
Yes, there are at least 7 different designs in this texture.  Wow, I say!
Looking forward to getting more in this thread!

PS. I remember having read an article about Tamara Aladin where she described her work at Riihimäen Lasi by the time it was very hectic, how foreign customers made their requirements for designs (or changes in designs?) and she drew sketches at night for the next day's meeting.

I'm almost certain it's one of the 7 designs in the series, and you have a particularly crisp example.

Yes, number 1435 you got there, "Glasvasen", very nice to see those pictures, thank you!  :hiclp:

Yet to find pics of two more designs in this thread, they are totally cylindrical, the other one with a narrower cylindrical part in base, and the other with a wider part at top.

PS. in my eyes the pattern looks similar. However,  I am not sure if the transparent part of the casing was actually supposed to come up like that ? I've only got a small picture where the transparent part is only as wide (=narrow) as in the others. So maybe that makes it looks so "strange". :) I think it looks strange and for that really really interesting and different!
Btw, I remember having seen a 30cm piece of one of these designs in this dark red/purple colour.
Speaking of colours, I also have a steel blue version, and a transparent. I wonder if there are more.
(of course in addition to the olive green ones mentioned above)
