Thanks Rosie

I have discovered it is actually in neodymium - so it looks lilac in daylight but at dusk under my table lamp it turns blue :)

Lovely in lilac!  :thup:

Here's the colour range, but in the Grapponia bottle.

Wow! I love neodymium. Fancy swapping for a plain one with a stopper?

scavo I suggest you search the stopper thing at this site, unfortunately the ones with stoppers are not original but copies.

There is a cork and metal ringed stopper variation that is genuine and original to Riihimaen

Hi

Is this a genuine piece? It was sold as and designlasin drawn image seems to match. If it is not genuine I will need to contact seller and ask for a refund.

Thanks Adam

Adam

yours is totally genuine

(there are some Italian copies floating around with those horrible plastic stoppers that the fake bottle decanters have too)
