Finnish (?) blue glass decanter
« on: June 25, 2011, 06:35:29 PM »
Any ideas on this one? It's just over 8.5in high, has a blown stopper and a round, polished pontil mark to the base.

I was told it was Finnish when I bought it.

Any thoughts/ideas hugely appreciated.
Many thanks, Anthony

One of the Flindari shapes, designed by Nanny Still: http://www.designlasi.com/en/content/flindari-carafe-still-nanny-en-0

These are not cheap to buy - very nice item.
