Picked up this empty box in Finland this year, to my eye a very stylish thing.
(Would have been nicer with the glass inside)

Not what I was expecting to see, Tim, but very interesting all the same. :)
You deserved to have found the glass inside, what a shame you didn't get it.  :'(
Cheers, Sue (M)

Same box was used in many Vanha Kartano glass vases, I have 2 boxes, one came with ultrablue piironki and another came with clear aitanlukko vases.

Hello Mika, welcome to the glass message board.
 Nice to find those items still in there original boxes. the label on my box seems to be Kaapikello. Do you think those prices are the old Finnish markka?
I would like to buy a few of them at those prices.
Tim
