Cathy one other thing. Do you know anyone in Sydney who does good glass repairs? I have 2 pieces that need some work and my last effort at repair locally almost ruined an Archimede Seguso vase.
Clean and Crisp a Murano twist.
Archimede tops my list.

Just looked up Fugl Alli. I found the fugl means bird. I wonder if the second word is A11i or Alli. I bet it has to do with Iitalla.

"Alli" is "Long-tailed-duck" in Finnish. That is the birds nam in English, in Latin i.e. Clangula hyemalis.

Fugl is not Finnish, it seems to be "bird" in Icelandic.

Btw, Oiva Toikka names his birds sometimes very accurately but he also bends the names of common birds whenever, I suppose, he thinks the bird may not exactly look like a certain species or then simply just for fun. Many of the names are really funny. (you read: hard to translate)  :)

PS. Iittala is Iittala, not Iitalla, just in case you would google  ;)

px, I have such a hard time figuring out how many letters to double in the word. I have to look it up each time I spell it. I guess this time I looked up the wrong spelling. I'll have to remember, 2 eyes, 2 teeth, and one long nose (old alligator). Now I'll remember. Maybe.  :D

Sorry Rosie but the seller had it under Murano and did not know what it was, same as me. I just liked the look of it and bought it.
I'm living dangerously with this one as I am under strict financial instructions and only allowed to buy Archimede Seguso unless it happens to be antique jewellery,perfume or whatever Alison fancies, in which case that is different.

You can just see too - on the base photo in the listing - the corner of the blue on silver Nuutajärvi label poking out underneath the rectangular white label.  :rah:

I was wondering about Nuutajärvi when I found the Iittala listings on Google. I always see Nuutajärvi on eBay for the Toikka birds. Did he do designs for both places? I am totally out of my element with Scandinavian glass.

Added on. Oh... never mind. Dumb question.

Anita....not dumb at all...I take it you found the answer?

This is a consolation prize for a poor purchase of glass last week that was supposed to be Seguso. :-[

 It will be a one off in our house but I think we will enjoy having it.
