Red vase - ID = Riihimäen lasi
« on: January 31, 2013, 08:53:27 AM »
Hi,
This looks like Scandinavian glass to me but have been unable to identify it.
Has anyone got any ideas?
Stands about 8 inches tall
Many thanks

Nice one. This is a Riihimäenlasi vase by Tamara Aladin.

Thanks Ivo,
That's great news.
Got this and another similar from a charity shop.
The other one looks like an Alsterforrs(sp?) piece I've seen on 20th century glass
Thanks again

(Alsterfors is the spelling).

Your vase is one of the four shapes that the Tulppaani (Tulip) vases by Tamara Aladin are found in: http://www.designlasi.com/en/esinehaku?hakusana=&vamistaja=All&muotoilija=All&tarkoitus=All&sarja=326

Thanks very much John.
That's really helpful.
I do love the look of the Scandinavian glass but know very little. Can you recommend any good books for a beginner?

Tricky question, Millers 20th Century Glass by Andy McConnell is quite good but it has become very expensive. There must be others, one that I don't have is Creative Energies by William Geary, can anyone with a copy tell us what it is like? The Leslie Pina books Fire & Sea and also Smoke & Ice though far from perfect have their uses but again they are not cheap.

I gather Andy McConnell is also currently working on a new Swedish Glass Book...., Focusing on designers Vicke Lindstrand, Erik Hoglund, Goran Warff, Bertil Vallien, Lars Hellsten & Signe Persson Melin. I think all being well is due to be published sometime in the Autumn. - One to keep an eye out for!
