One of our oldest unresolved queries, the picture has been restored in the first post.

I thought this was Scandinavian, but I'm less sure now and feeling too grotty to put proper efforts into looking it up.  I hope you get an attribution soon.  :oops:

Looks like Scandi to me.  The name escapes me though.  The clue to me is in the angular joint where the top of the handle is.  I can only recall seeing turq before, but wouldn't surprise me if amber is right too.


Hi Max, you're thinking of Nanny Stills 'Harlekiini' jug - I was lucky enough to briefly own one and a set of 6 glasses before selling them in an instant!  I don't think this is Harlekiini because as far as I know it did only come in the bluey turquoise and the shape of this isn't quite right.  I did however see a very similar jug to this recently in a charity shop (the only discernible difference being the colour - this one was grey) which had an old Polish label on it - so perhaps Polish?

I've found an old picture of my jug (sob I loved this and wish I'd kept it now) - anyway, you can see it's quite different from the one above.

Pip,

Just to throw a spanner in the works, here's a green Riihimäki Jug.  :D  :D

I've never seen any of the rest of the Harlekiini in any colour but the turquoise one though.

:shock:  hmmmmm erm, well, erm.... gosh I dunno - that does look EXACTLY the same shape ... perhaps the Harlekiini bit refers purely to the blue glass.  So maybe Nanny Still designed these jugs for Riihimaki in different colours like your green one and then produced them in the tuquoisey/blue and gave them the Harlekiini name as a special range?  Whaddya reckon?  Either way though, they're different from the amber one at the beginning of this post - which I still reckon could be Polish.
