Kaappikello
« on: October 29, 2011, 11:50:40 AM »
Green Kaappikello vase by Riihimaki - Helena Tynell - just delivered today

Any idea of colourways as I want to collect these - Designlasin seems to state three but I am not sure

Thanks Adam

Sorry to tell you Adam, it doesn't quite look like a genuine Kaappikello to me. Shouldn't it be a vase, not a bottle?

I wondered as well; the surface structure seems to be different (and I don't know if the clear casing should be there)

Here are two links to older threads here on the board where similar items were discussed (if I remember correctly some of the bottle versions were probably Italian, but others Riihimäen):

Design Lasi seems to be a group rather like whitefriars.com that puts up only items they can confirm are actual correctly attributed pieces.  This implies that unless a memebr has all/most of the pieces in a range those missing are less likely to be shown until they can be verified. 

The same is true to some extent with Perter Harder's site harder.net where Peter has been collecting and publishing his collection - but in fact some 6 -10 photos are from me as I had pieces to fill in gaps.  It is to be hoped that factories like Iittala, etc. will supply Design Lasi with back catalogues as Holmegaard/Kastrup have decided to do for Peter Harder.

All the bottle versions are Italian and came with square stoppers with plastic ferrules.
Some are marked Italy to the vase.

The patterns copied (but uncased and in non-Riihimaen colours, and frankly of a much lesser quality) are Kaapikello, Emma and Aurinkopullo.

Don't worry Adam, the smaller genuine have the funnel necks, and the largest the rims.

The fake Aurinkopullos are marked Made In Italy to the base, and come in the medium size.
