some riihimaki glass

Had these on the hallway shelf for a while, thought i would post a photograph.
Is it OK to post random photos without seeking info?
Hope you like.

Essi, yes indeed it is. We love to see pics of members' glass, especially where it's known what they are, as they help us answer queries about similar items that other members ask. :)

Thanks for that Anne.
The vase on the left is called Fontana(1417) by nanny still, and the vase on the right is called Palkki(1307) by Helena tynell.
I think palakki means beam or bar.
