Sizes of Riihimaki Tamara Aladin #1461 - how many?
« on: December 19, 2011, 01:08:29 AM »
I just received another #1461 vase that is larger than the other two I already owned.  I then realised when I put them together that all three are different in size.  I wonder if a kind member is able to tell me how many sizes there are?

First Photo - largest  - note has 4 hyphens and then 5 in the next row
Second Photo - middle - here are 3 hyphens alternated with 4 in the next row
Third Photo - smallest - here 3 hyphens have 3 hyphens in the next row.

Should I be looking for a 4 / 4 combination?  A 5 / 5 as well?

Another interesting observation is shown in the first photo.  The two halves of the moulds are seemingly "flipped".  The left hand part has almost no pattern at the top, and the right hand almost none at the bottom.  It is quite noticeably  different.

Hmmm!  :spls: I have just measured my three at 16/18/22 cms respectively - so "px" it seems as if I am missing a really large one - and have an new sized small one.   :thud:

Hi Ross that's nice to hear and adds to us collecting information!  :hiclp: I believe in your measuring skills.  :thup:

It is not unusual they added 16 cm too. Especially the export range was very flexible and they produced what was ordered.



addition:  here's one in 28cm seems like the hyphens are in 4/5 anyway.
