Keith they look fab all together - the colours and shapes really work well.  Ross, I do think that of all the glass I own, the Riihamaen and Sklo Union pieces make the best displays - your Riihiamen pieces look great.

Thanks "m" I have only relatively recently started collecting Finnish glass and I reckon the coloured stuff is fabulous - as you say it display's so well.  I have not got into SKLO because yopu see so little on our Ebay so I suspect there is not a lot out here - but of course I may be very wrong. 

My favourite glass style is basically iridescent - obviously started by buying Colin Heaney in the early days and graduating to Orient & Flume (wish I could afford much more) and Isle of Wight, Okra, etc., etc.  I do like "Latticino" my first piece ever was a lovely vine leaf shape.  Finally I love good crystal and Kosta Boda Glass.

PS.   If time permits I will try to put up a Scots theme for Hogmanay (31st December)
I bamle all snileplg eorrrs on the Cpomuter Kyes.  They confuse my fingers !!!

WOW thank you Pamela!

I had not really checked the set yet, it was owned by my late father in law whom I never met.

I guess I should have said something about the vases and bottles on the first picture,, the emerald bottles I know nothing about, the colorour is really dark emerald, then there is a Ingrid glass ( I gather from a post a saw somewhere on this board), the 2 aquamarine vases look like brothers but I suspect they are not vintage at all, but I love this color on glass.
The amber vase is czech, the purple one I am looking for an ID and then there is the Walther glass vase.

And yes..this it TOO much fun

I like my loo too. ::) If I had somewhere else for books I could squeeze in more glass....

Rosie, the middle shelves are filled with Erik Hoglund beasties, individual photos of them all are here in this album: https://picasaweb.google.com/Johnmj100/ErikHoglund

Yes, Helga,  welcome to you......  :hi:
That's a gorgeous decanter set and Pamela is our Pressed Glass Guru, so it is always worthwhile having a look through her website, but you will need a big cup of coffee, 'cos it is enormous, fascinating and very very addictive!
You are tantalising me with the little peek of more glass on the bottom shelf.........any chance of seeing them please?  :)

Thank you John, aren't they fun!?......I will have to keep a look out for some....the ellie and hippo would look good in my collection.....trouble is, once you have one, you want the set!!
