The blue vase is not from Riihimaki, that appears to be one of many internet enabled myths, maker unknown at the moment. Nice quality though and they tend to sell well on ebay.

No idea what these pics look like as I'm in the middle of no where, here are a couple more showing one of the best cut glass items I have ever seen (thats not been behind museum glass) and I think dating to the 1840's.

Nice haul! I think the red jug/vase with the clear handle is Riihiimaki, isn't it? And I spy a nice wee bit of Davidson cloud glass as well. The pearly blue posy bowl with your cut glass piece is gorgeous!
