The only Riihimaen I have of any vague note is two Kleopatra vases... Cheap quality Riihimaen doesn't often crop up in these parts, unfortunately.

Lynne, there are a fair few websites showing examples of Scandi glass including Riihimaki... some of them are in Glasslinks here: http://glasslinks.yobunny.org.uk/articles.php?lng=en&pg=40 - Tiina's Finnish Glass Art has some really nice Riihimaki examples (almost at the bottom of the Glasslinks list). Hope they're useful... good luck at the auction. :)

Now I'm curious.  Is Rengas the vase or the colour? I put this pic up of the yellow vase ages ago and no-one knew who it was by but we thought Tamara Aladin. It is spectacular and it cost me an awful lot of money but I could not resist it. Never seen another like it since.

It is called Rengas and is designed by Tamara Aladin ca 1972.
