I had to search... and thankfully found it quite quickly.  :)
Sorry for hijacking this thread, but in this case I think the pieces are similar enough to be
compared.

I am glad you found it dirk! This gets interesting. It looks so Humppila for the colour, you are correct. But the design is very "Metsä" although counter clockwise, which I had never noticed before!  :o I have seen a couple but not ever looked into them so closely to compare.

First, I would have thought P.Kallioinen might have worked a the design for Humppila as to be slightly different. It is known he worked for many factories. But then I found this: the same bowl as yours in clear and with LasiSepät sticker; http://kuvat2.huuto.net/c/92/df7cf555aa9d80938f567d93dd7a5-orig.jpg
If, and I cannot see why not as it's not a big deal anyway, the sticker was there from the beginning one option is P Kallioinen made this design later? Maybe the first Metsä -series did not include a bowl in this shape. Interesting! Will have to try to find more now.  :)

Many thanks for the info, px - much appreciated!  :hiclp:
It is indeed a bit strange that they made both of these.... BTW I remember I´ve seen one of the
´original´ bowls from this thread with a sprayed on decoration in blue and green. It was some
months ago on ebay, but doesn´t seem to be listed anymore. Have you ever come across one of
those, too? Is this technique known for other LasiSepät designs, too?

Rosie, getting more and more interesting.  :o  ;D

dirk, no way.. sprayed on ?? Never.  :o  Only bright green or blue solid colour, and "old rosa". Like I said - will have to look for more!

wow, thanks dirk! I have never seen one like that here, and wouldn't have believed a Finnish glass factory would do something that washes and wears off... I have only seen that in the cheapest glassware before.  :o
Would definitely like someone see one in real life tho and confirm your verdicts. :o Very interesting !

Then Rosie comes along and throws another spanner in the works.....if this didn't have a label, I would have said it was Metsa?????

Ha! Thanks rosie, interesting, in deed !  :hiclp:
This very much enhances my theory that P.Kallioinen may have sold his designs but kept the rights himself. So he could sell them further. It seems, as well as Viking, this design may have been produced in Italy and Denmark too, not to mention at least LasiSepät but probably some other Finnish factory too.
 :-\

Oh, and before that ebay ad disappears: the picture is of a 16,5cm high vase in the Metsä design, dark brown and with a rectangular "Viking Hand made USA" sticker.
I have seen clear ones in that particular shape, also one with a LasiSepät sticker that had the upper part in green, lower clear.
