Hi, on page 219 of Millers 20th Century Glass by Andy McConnell there's photographed something similar - the Pajazzo vases designed in 1970 by Nanny Still for Riihimaki however as you say they have two sets of bumps, a quite different rim feature and also they're two coloured.  The text underneath doesn't mention any made in tangerine - just yellow/olive, yellow/rubin, yellow/blue - although Nanny Still did use a bright tangerine colour in lots of her designs so it is possible ... but as I said, your shape isn't in any of my books unfortunately so I'd suggest it's a lookeylikey.  It's jolly nice though, just the sort of thing I go for - bright and funky.

Hi again, I know I asked if anyone had any idea to the designer of this vase quite a while ago of which no one seems to be able to help me. I now have 2 of these vases and would really like some info, if anyone out there can help I would really appreciate it as I would like to sell 1 of them.

many thanks!

I've looked through the designs by Helena Tynell & Nanny Still and it doesn't appear to be by either of them.   :-\  Sorry I can't be more help.

Hi Martinus,
