Riihimaen - but which designer what date?
« on: April 14, 2012, 04:04:33 PM »
Of all my books on Scandi glass none help that much with these type of Riihimaen vases - is it an expo range piece - any idea of date and designer (Aladin)

Thanks Adam

Hi Adam, this one along with some quite similar versions is often mentioned as attributed to T.Aladin. I remember even in a book. However, they have never been officially attributed. Of course it is known Aladin designed a large part of the export range sold anonymously so it is a possibility.

I have just one book and it states these were in the export catalogue of 1976, no mention of a designer. Presuming I'm looking at the same thing. 24.75cm tall.
