Is this a Riihimaen Lasi Oy vase with G Hardy label?

Mod: This topic has been split out from a general topic on Aseda.

Now this can't be right - its a vase with the usual Aseda or Swedish import label (see pic) but the vase is a dead ringer for the purple Riihimaen Lasi Oy vase by Aimo Okkolin.

A mix up or what?

The label is a G hardy import label; they probably imported from a variety of manufacturers (they also had a Murano label)

The "Hardy" label shown is now known to be Hans Geismar, not George Hardy.
