Nanny Still "Saturnus" or Blenko (??)
« on: September 02, 2006, 01:22:54 PM »
Here's an odd question.  The vase has the characteristic Blenko pontil, and no etched signature, but looks very much like Nanny Still for Riihimaki.  It measures 6 3/4" or 17 1/2 cm tall.  The pictures of Saturnus pieces I saw online had a longer rim; if it's Blenko, it's interesting to see this transatlantic exchange of ideas.  Question is, who thought of it first?   :)
Thanks,
Charles.

Charles do you still have a copy of these pictures and if so can you add them back onto the topic please as the links above are no longer working.

I'm trying to tidy up the older posts Carolyn - part of the housekeeping/archiving process on the board. ;)

Ugh, housekeeping, I hate it.  :ooh: One of the reasons I will never be a moderator, but love what you do.  :kissy:
