Small green vase - by whom? - ID = Riihimäen Lasi
« on: November 02, 2011, 12:33:07 PM »
This small green vase is c. 12cms tall.  Has good weight.  I suspected Caithness but can't find a match.  :spls:   Help.  ;D

I don't think you'd find a base like that on Caithness. Caithness is usually ground flat on the base. I'm not sure but your piece looks machine made so I suspect it is later Riihimäen.

Caithness is not usually ground flat. It's flattened on the marver.

Thanks for the correction Christine. Had to go and look up what a marver is ... now I know. As I have said many times, my knowledge of glass production is limited here - but what I learn here impresses my mates who don't visit these boards!

Thanks Ivo.  Any idea of the designer?  Can't seem to find a matching photo anywhere, and that flared rim worries me, where does your certainty come from?

From a stickered copy in my collection. And to the best of my knowledge the is no specific desjgner for these - it' s a team effort, aka factory design.
