Scandinavian?
« on: January 10, 2013, 04:39:07 PM »
Pretty sure from the colour this is Scandinavian, I was thinking Riihimaen at first but that doesn't seem right, Aseda? 10" high with fire polished rim and no marks to base.

Thanks Adam

My first thought was that it could be one of the Borgstrom designs for Aseda (and I don't know anything about Caithness, so I can't do a comparison).

Looks like Caithness to me too - like this angel fish one of mine. Actual colour is more olive green than the photo appears.
this is engraved 78 to base.
