Looks very Tamara Aladin to me. Nanny Still or Helena Tynell are other possibilities.

But I would definitely say from the Riihimaen Lasi stable.

That is a whopping price :shock:  :shock:

Hiya, yes I agree with Della, it's definitely Riihimaki - either Nanny Still or Tamara Aladin - but I'd say the price was rather steep.  Here they vary from £20 to £50 depending on the shape, size, thickness of the casing and of course condition. It's very nice though - I have lots of these types of 'lantern' vases in different colours in my eBay shop (although not this actual shape).

Hi Ray,

This colour is one of my favourites. I love the shape of yours :mrgreen:

That's a nice shaped vase Della - I have one similar but not exactly the same.  Your garden (I'm presuming it's yours) is absolutely gorgeous as well by the way - looks like the perfect place to unwind with a cold beer :-)

Ray, I've looked back at my old sales records and I sold one a year ago very similar to yours (same colour, size and thickness but not such a good shape) for £55.  Hope that helps.  Pip

Yes, it is our garden, but very little of it is my doing :oops:  I have a distinct dislike for gardening. Now sitting out in it, with a nice glass of wine, is a different story. :wink:  :wink:  It is too warm today for me though, 31.7 degrees at mo. This time of the year it gets a little too humid, but I am NOT complaining :!:

Ray, bear in mind I sold mine as a Buy it Now shop inventory item - so it took a few weeks to sell at that price.  I'm gonna keep an eye on your item and will probably put in a bid or two myself  :wink:  Best of luck with it.
