i refuse to believe any Finnish company ever used plastic stoppers.

All very well Ivo but I've been to that site before and I can't understand a word of it!

Thanks Della & Adam...the only trouble is, I have five glass handles in this office and only two of them match!  I blame Adam, he made me go handle crazy.  :P  :lol:

I've always thought it a sign of a confident woman who doesn't "do" matching things.  Emmi

Max,
It's really interesting to see your "Stella Polaris" decanter - I'd seen a couple on ebay and wondered about them, with the stopper.
The page with the Italian "sun bottles" on the aurinkopullo site is
http://lisa.hyrinet.fi/aurinkopullo/piraatit.htm
I don't know if the bases of them bear any comparison to your "stella polaris" decanter?

The sunbottles with ground stoppers half way down the page (under Hajuvesipullot [perfume/scent bottles]) are Finnish. It seems to say they are actually signed plus one has a Finncristal label.
There is just listed as well a Grapponia bottle, with what looks like a ground stopper.http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280008784788

It would be so nice to know about the Emma decanters. More and more of them seem to be appearing!

Thanks Robbo.  My 'stella polaris' had R1 clearly impressed on the base.  I'm 99% certain it was an Italian copy.  As Ivo pointed out, the plastic covered stopper didn't seem right, and the design wasn't crisp enough somehow.

About the Emma decanters...I'm still not sure about them.  Someone here should offer to buy one in the name of research and compare a vase to it...  :wink:

I have bought one, Max and it should be here this week. I don't have an Emma vase to compare it to, but I will take photos and post them here when I have it and hopefully someone here will have the vase for comparison.  :wink:

It hasn't cost me very much, so whatever it turns out to be I will be happy, as I bought it because I liked the look of it.
