No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Having the right books is a great aid in identifying glass.

Nothing with, or designed to take, these plastic & glass stoppers was made at Riihimaen.

Talking about Riihimäen Lasi decanter stoppers here's a picture of the kind of a stopper I remember having seen on a Grapponia decanter we had home when I was a child. Robert, can you confirm? Have you seen this particular stopper in other RL decanters?

That's exactly the stopper one would expect to see on a genuine Riihimaki item, and not a huge glass and nasty plastic affair like the Italian copies.

There's another 'Kaappikello' style bottle currently selling on ebay with plastic stopper....the price is somewhat surprising!

Hi Wayne
Hope you're well
Yes! indeed it does, and far nicer than the plastic Italian ones
