Didn't they (Riihimaen) have 'Finncristal' labels on their export pieces?


Yes, they did. I have a Pala vase with a Finncristal label on it.
Enjoying being in the Midlands.......some people are just amazing....

Pinkspoons - well spotted ref the eBay auction

Good thread link. Two of the vases are exactly the same as one this post is about. I have owned these in varying shapes over the years

After seeing an advert Ivo showed on this forum I agree with him 'Elme Glasbruk' - I think these could be a good investment when information and labelled items by Elme starts appearing (like in Miller's :roll: )

I think the guy selling the items says maybe Holmegaard - why not maybe Riihimaen - ref this discussion - ah well LOL

Unfortunately Holmegaard has become the keyword to have for brightly coloured cased glass on eBay at the moment.

The 'FOREIGN' label from the bottom of my vase:

Just updating a couple of old threads about these vases, for anyone that comes across them when searching for an ID like I did once..

Turns out they are not Scandinavian or German, but Japanese, see here for one with a label:
