Riihimäen 'Kleopatra' Vase...?

I'm pretty much certain that this is from the Kleopatra range by Tamara Aladin... but I just thought it best to check. :)

I'm moving to Lincolnshire if that's where you got it from.  :lol:

It's got the same top, handle, colour (but you knew that already).  :)

Got it from Hemswell Cliff Market, just outside of Lincoln, for a bank-breaking £3.  :wink:

Same style of top as this one.

Note: That was a slight variation of this one, no 47

Riihimäen 'Kleopatra' Vase...?

I have owned the vase on the second website before (not literally the same one, obviously), and this new purchase matches up quite closely in style, colour, etc... to how I remember my first vase.

But I just wasn't familiar with this shape, so was just wondering if it was part of the range, or just a knock-off....  :D

Unlikely, I know... but you never can tell.

*slaps forehead*

I do still own a tall Kleopatra vase! Here's a side-by-side comparison:

You know you've probably got too much glass when you lose track of exactly what you've got... especially when it's sat buried under other stuff in the same room you're typing in!

Edit:

*more slapping of forehead*

I just clicked on the 'More' link on the second website's Kleopatra vase to see if it gave a production year, and it brings up photographs of my vase in question. Hoorah. Thanks, TC. :)
