Muuten turkoosin-sinisia paitsi jalat varittomia/Valm.  50-luvulta 70 luv.alkuun/Sarjasta on tehty matkittuja laseja yms.  Harlekiinin tunnistaa naista matkituista siita etta Harlekiinien jalka on varitonta lasia ja itse kanta on turkoosi seka lautasmainen eli valumatkeraava.

That's what it says about Harlekiini-lasisto in Designlasin Hintakirja anyway.  :roll:

Any Finnish speakers available?  :lol:

By a native:

The color is turquoise blue except for the stand which has no colour. Glasses are manufactured between 50's until the beginning of 70's. The line/design has been copied and the original harlekiini-glass can be identified by the colourless stand and the glass itself that is turquoise blue, plate-like


 and the last word is something about casting but seriously i've never heard the word before..


What could that be? Technical term I presume.

What about the original jug?

Could it possibly be turn-mould-blown?

Could be Rob, maybe I'll try emailing the Finnish Glass Museum and asking them.  :?:   Thanks for the translation Frank, how convenient knowing Finnish speakers!  :D

By the way, the term 'Mehuk' is applied to this piece too...I've InterTrans it (cheers Ivo) and it means Juicy/Mellow...so I suppose it's for juice.  Hmm...didn't really learn anything there!   :roll:

Side benefit to living in a super-multicultural country, Carmen's last job had about 50 staff coming from 28 different countries and my last one had 25 nationalities. It was next door to the International Criminal Court which has over 100 nationalities working in it.

Oh, I have one of the amber jugs (in the original post) in storage somewhere. I've always just assumed Polish. I've had one of the Harlekiini jugs in the past too (in turquoise) - and they're quite different, as Pip says.

Edit:
I found some piccies...

John,
Re. Nic's great photos: you need to find the thread in the Cafe about the use of Light Tents. I'll see if I can dig the topic out.
