Here comes another not identified vase.
My first thought was Riihimaen Lasi, but i have not found a comparable one...
Probably Riihimaen is the wrong idea for searching ?

Whitefriars I believe. Known as a double diamond, I am sure someone will be along who knows more than I though.

Edit: Just confirmed it. Pattern number 9759. Looks like kingfisher blue.

Just to confirm: http://www.whitefriars.com/catalogues/contents.php?ID=1424&id=1295

Definitely in their kingfisher blue, probably designed by Geoffrey Baxter.
