Congratulations - that one is quite rare and by Jakko Niemi, the main glass blower at Nuutajärvi.  I have an identical one, and it has been subject of discussion on this board - but a search turns out blank. It may have been too long ago....

Hello bigbri, you do indeed have a very special piece of glass there... Jaakko Niemi is one of my favourite glass makers.  I collect his lovely birds and ducks.

Ivo, I think and hope this is your link.
