Very large cased ruby red teardrop vase
« on: November 26, 2012, 04:10:29 PM »
You'll all be sick of me before the day's out!

 ;)

Very large cased ruby red teardrop vase, machine cut rim, measures 200mm tall and weighs a ton!

I have recently see a blue one of these online attributed to Riihimaki, could it be a newer item?

Thanks again everyone :)

This may be from the current Zwiesel production by the looks of it.

Many thanks Ivo,

I imagine there's not much value in it then?

It is a gorgeous item though :)

These things are not cheap. Perhaps a google round will reveal all including prices?

This is from the seller of the blue vase

'I am the point of reference. I had an amber version (sold 2 months ago with
the same description) with an acid mark to the base which resembled the old
Riihi (dog/lion) mark. This was enough to convince me the vase is by Riihi.
I have 7 years of reference notes regarding this vase! Online (glass
specialist) arguments get very tedious. See shape '1361' (a smaller version
of this vase. The finish, glass colour, rim, ripple/toffee base etc all
point to Riihi. It's not seguso, Leerdam, Flavio Poli etc. Those that
question the identity of this vase NEVER put foward another possible maker,
therefore I am certain it can only be Riihi (it also compares well with
other Riihi glass I've handled, regards'
