Scandinavian?
« on: May 10, 2018, 07:26:08 AM »
Hi All, over the last 2 or 3 years I have been collecting Riihimaki and have built up a collection of approx 40+ pieces. I have also been picking up pieces that appeal to me that may or may not be Riihimaki. Over the last month I have been cataloguing the pieces and have now properly identified the majority of them. However, I have 6 or 7 pieces that I can't identify one way or the other. So, any help would be much appreciated. I will post these over the next few weeks.

This was the first piece I bought - at an auction amongst a "job lot" of glass and is what got me collecting. There is wear to the base which suggested age and the colour is a little unusual. i do not believe that it is a Riihimaki colour - at least I have not been able to find similar. Early on I thought it may have been from the Tornado range, but it is perhaps too bulbous in comparison. There are no identifying marks
Any help much appreciated
Many thanks, Mark
