I found this link http://www.aurinkopullo.com/ — it has some great photos, including scans of Riihimäki trade catalogues and pictures of Helena Tynell at work. :D  :D

Hey Robbo, thanks for the link - sorry it is down, will try again later.
I wonder if you - or anyone else - can shed any light on this bright yellow clear cased lookalike?

I'm almost convinced it is not Whitefriars LOL  :D

Ivo, there is a page on the site with some variants. Maybe it would be worth contacting them—there are some e-mail addresses and a contact form—they may have come across your version before  :D .

It's unlike anything else i've seen  :? .

Jouni, the special headadvicer has kindly let me know

I am thinking that your vase picture is not Helena Tynell "Sun".  So I also
think, that it is not made in Finland.


And so the good news is, Finland is ruled out  :D  - a small but significant step on the way to identification  :P

Ivo, by co-incidence, this (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Skandinavischer-Design-Art-Glas-Vase-um-1960_W0QQitemZ6558968182QQcategoryZ7481QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem) has come up on ebay today!

Very interesting - a few notches larger than mine (16cm)  but there is a distinct family resemblance. Smacks more of Wayne Husted than of Holmegaard but is most likely nun of the abuv. My current top three is 1. Swedish 2. Italian 3. German.

Ivo, another development...
There are a couple more (in blue and black) the same as the eBay one which have been catalogued as German

Brilliant - thanks for keeping an open eye.  He's a well reputed dealer, and I can well believe his attribution as 'German - ca. 1970"
