Some New Buys - Riihimaki, Magnor, Jane Charles

Pip:
Some lovely things there Adam - you had some serious bargains by the looks of it!  I particularly like your turquoise vase with the glass blobs on the side - sorry I can't help with IDing any of them.

Max:
I was thinking the signature on the Tiffany piece might be Elsa Peretti, who is their silver jewellery designer.  I'll have a look at a piece of my (slightly contraband...lol) jewellery later and see it the sig matches up.  :wink:

chopin-liszt:
:D:D:D

Jane Charles is a contemporary Scottish glass artist. Her creations are all one-off pieces, although she may make pefume bottles in similar styles. She exhibits regularly at the Strathearn Gallery in Crieff, and at the Scottish Glass Society Exhibition. She make blanks for Julia Linstead who is an engraver.

paradisetrader:
glass box in a heart shape
presumably top quality crystal  :?:  Looks good for 70s VSL  :roll:
But try as I might I can't make the signature to be that  :cry:
so Van *********  :?:
See www.tiffany.com
a search on "van" or "val" + "crystal" brings up nothing but it's interesting to see what they are up to.  
Sadly designers + makers are mostly UN-credited.
 :cry: Heart+crystal brings ............... a cobalt or red glass heart paperweight
..........hmmm styling looks v similar  :roll:
OMG found it: Elsa Peretti - Bingo !
