Hi Tigerchips :lol:
I think bamboo vases really look like bamboo. I have surfed and surfed on the Internet and bambo vases are a little bit different. I have seen the same vase, as I have, different colour, smaller size on http://www.vetrocollections.com/
, they also have a bamboo vase for sale. They say that my vase is designed by Tamrara Aladin and made by Riihimaen Lasi in the 70's. I am a little bit lost with Riihimaen Lasi Oy (Oy means Comapny, I think :!: ) and Riihimaki. The difference was explained in a thread once, but I can't find it again.
The base was discussed in an earlier thread, which was about a 'pala' vase and concetric circles, if my memory serves me correctly.
Marcus :wink: ,
I did read a post not so long ago, about temperature changes and the effect it can have on glass. I did take note and took this photo when the vase was extremely cold.....the post man had delivered it 10 minutes before I took the photo. I really do appreciate your concern and hope that new members take as much notice of the posts that are written as I do. I really do read all that members post on these forums, and I do take thing seriously.
Hi Max, :lol:
I can only go off what I have read. On the site, mentioned above, they accredit Tamara Aldain with this design. I have just seen another vase, with a Riihimaen sticker attached, for sale here in Holland, but I am coming back to the UK next week so I can't make a bid. I have added it to my favourites and I hope that it is still for sale when I come back.
I must say, I also love the colour of this vase. The photo, which I saw before I bought this vase, did not do it justice at all.
