Riihimaki vase?
« on: January 17, 2011, 02:39:06 PM »
I bought this blue vase thinking that it may be a Tamara Aladin design but cannot trace one in this pattern at this height (28 cms). The nearest I found was a pattern 1379 but that appears to be only 25cms. Any thoughts will be much appreciated. Thanks JOHN

Riihimäki is a correct attribution.

Thanks Ivo, I was just worried about height and also it was unsigned, John

Interesting enough - I have noticed the export models from Riihimäki that time where usually produced in either heights 16/18/22/28 cm or 20/25/30 cm but this model - which by the way has not been officially attributed to Tamara Aladin although often sold as one - seems to have been produced in both series of heights.

Riihimäki is rarely signed, very occasionally it may have an acid etched mark of a Lynx on the base. Of around forty or fifty bits I have bought over the years only one was signed (this one) and a small vase had the acid etched mark.

Yes, definitely Riihimaki, never signed in this size.

Just for the record; this model has now been officially attributed to Erkkitapio Siiroinen in the catalogue published this year for the exhibition of his work in Riihimen Lasimuseo.
They mention since the Riihimen Lasi 100 years book was published (with a catalogue of Siiroinen's work) they had found some photographs to be able to identify a couple additions, this is one.

The non Riihimaki variants of this are easy to spot (Reijmyre) as their base is ridged concentric circles.

Really? Since I am quite unfamiliar with Reijmyre and I know many Riihimen vases do occur with concentric circles I would be curious to hear more. Would you mind specifying "the non Riihimki variants of this"  please ?  :)

The only info I have is from pg 264 of Miller's collectable price guide which shows a pale lime green vase (Not a Riihimaki colour) and the base with the concentric circles.
