Scandinavian Glass Identification. ID = Lasisepät Mäntsälä
« on: October 07, 2017, 03:16:00 PM »
Hi,

This is my first post and I hope someone can help me. I was lucky enough to find a box at a bootsale that had a jug, six glasses and two what I think are tealight holders. I have looked on the web and they appear to be Lasisepat Mansala but I am not 100% sure especially as the water jug has a Food safety symbol on it.
Can anyone please tell me what I have found  :)
Thanks in advance

Hello and welcome to the board. I would agree that the flower shaped bowl is Lasisepat, made in Finland. I have a reference photo of a labelled one. 

Re the food safety mark on the jug... I've not seen one of these on a decorative jug from a set before, but the britglass.co.uk website states that "Food contact materials and articles which are not already in contact with food when sold should be accompanied by the words “for food contact” or a specific indication as to their use. An appropriate symbol may be used; Annex II to the regulations shows the “wineglass & fork” symbol. If necessary, instructions for the safe and appropriate use of the material and article must also be given, and the name or trade name and address or registered office of the manufacturer must be included (Article 15)."

Just as an aside to the above, for future reference would you please post one item per post - e.g. jug and tumblers in one and the flower bowl in another, so that we can consider each separately without getting confused, and then once ID'd we can move each to the relevant country forum. Thanks!   A moderator will be able to separate this out for you on this occasion.

Edited to remove erroneous info.

Yep, I would say Lasisepat Mantsala, Finland Designed by Pertti Kallioinen. Dating to the 1970's
The 'Cow Parsley' design on the jug is exactly the same as on the candle holders.
If I know, I'll comment. If I think I know, I'll have a go. If I have no idea, I'll just keep quiet and learn from others, so the next time I'll know.

Tobermory's candle bowls appear to be different to the jug/tumbler design though, they are reeded but without the cow parsley design. 

This is the cow parsley one: https://i.pinimg.com/236x/e0/98/83/e09883a71c2c451187e8fac456d3392f--finland-candle-holders.jpg

Sorry, Anne, I meant the jug and glasses.
The tealight holder is Lasisepat too, there is a labelled example on the net (which I can't for the life of me find atm), but I don't know a pattern name for it.

That's the one, thanks Della. I have a ref image (belonging to a previous ebay sale so I can't post it here) with a label but couldn't find an online image of this pattern to add here.  I can't find a pattern name for it either - I ran the text from your link through Google Translate in the hope it might tell me, but I'm not at all sure it helps any!  ;D

Got to love Google Translate sometimes.

Yippee  :) :) :) don't need to split to separate threads ... all items identified as Lasisepät Mäntsälä.

I will add that as an ID to the title and move the whole thing to the Scandi forum.
