 :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:   Hazel your bowl has a whole level of sophistication that my vase does not have.  BUT mine is ARABIA series as well.  It is by Kaj Franck (see Photos).

I do not know if the Arabia series was designed completely by Kaj Franck - but looking at the quality difference between my piece and yours I would suggest not.  Can't get any help from the usual sources I use, so good luck. 

I bamle all snileplg eorrrs on the Cpomuter Kyes.  They confuse my fingers !!!

The Arabia label doesn't mean a quality difference -- all Nuutajärvi glass was sold under that brand name for a certain time (Lesley Jackson states this label was used 1971-77 and 1983-87; after 1992 their glass was sold under the Iittala brand name).

Hi Hazel,  sorry you are poorly. :srn:
Just when you are feeling 'more betterer' is the meantime, look after yourself, rest and have some nice honey and lemon drinks. :fwr:

Hi All

I am feeling a little better today - what a yukky cold and cough :thud:

I have the answer - I did a post on the forum (Finnish) and here is the reply I received.

Designer Heikki Orvola, name Kukka (Flower) or Tulppaani (Tulip), the latter name might be given by fans and watchers

I have been meaning to look up this bowl for about two years (needed time off in bed to spur me on - maybe colds have a purpose after all).  :24:

Thanks for your help, Rosie, Ross and Michael (picture of the signature now with the others).
