Timo Sarpaneva textured...

:-) I'm a little wary of believing signatures or initials on pieces of glass after buying a dodgily dremmelled 'Tapio Wirkkala' piece recently (very cheap fortunately).  However, this vase looks and feels the biz and the 'TS' on the base matches perfectly with the 'TS' on my Festivo goblets.  So what do you reckon about this?  Link below...

Texture looks about right. The knock-offs - the ones I've seen - tend to be a lot more uniform in pattern.

Great!  Thanks ever so for that Della (making mental note I MUST buy 'Smoke & Ice'!) this one just over 7in/18cm tall - whereabouts in the range of 3 does this one fall?

It doesn't say in Smoke & Ice, but in Designlasin, pg208, the sizes are given as 18cm 25.5cm & 32cm, so that would make yours the smallest in the range. It seems to be called Vertica.
