Hi Cathy,
It took  me a little while to find it but find it I did and it certainly seems to be my vase. Thanks a bunch.
Only the red one now and we are there!
Fill me in on the Mark Franks bit, are you saying he can't tell his Alsterfors from his Elma's.  ??? ;D ;D

Cheers,
Bryn (not Brian)

Needs confirmation from someone that it's the same vase, Bryn. Max and Pip, what do you think - is this Bryn's middle vase?

A better link is http://www.glasgaleriezindel.eu
Then choose Collections, Finland, and it's the tenth row, last image.

Hi Cathy,
I really think it is, only difference, of course, is the shade, not that that matters. That seems a very good site for distinguishing previously debatable pieces as well. Nice one. I think I'll put that on my favourites list.
Thanks a lot.

All glass is usually either WF or Murano and on a recent programme he described a piece of LLadro porcelain as being from Italy  ::)  And in answer to Cathy, yes I'd say Bryn's vase was an Aimo Okkolin (probably late 1970's).
