Geniune facon de venise is also incredibly lightweight.
There are not attempting to reproduce that, but are certainly inspired by it.
They really are rather lovely. No way a "cheap repro", simply wonderful contemporary goblets. :)
Glass / Riihimaen Lasi
« Last post by Lasi12 on July 17, 2017, 12:53:25 PM »
Hi all

Can anyone give info on this Riihimäen Lasi vase, I just bought in Copenhagen. Fx year, designer or value (if any:).

The sticker from Riihimaen Lasi is still on.

Will be very happy for any info, thanks.


Thanks John for the clarification, I had the impression that they're not genuine due to the light weight, they look like if they're made from plastic.

This is beautiful and signed NCC, or NGC, but other than coming up with National Glass Centre, I am having no luck at all.
Can anyone help, please?

After 1918 and before 1993 is the time period for the name, I guess the 1930s was the heyday for wares of this type.

The use of a hyphen is interesting though, not something I remember seeing before. This might be useful:

Looks Victorian to my eye, I suspect it is a bit older than Sue' estimate, maybe late 1800s.

Cheap reproduction sounds way too harsh to my ears, not easy things to make and these days the energy required for glass production is not cheap. A modern version of a traditional form would be my take on them - bold, bright and cheerful. The old expression 'nothing new under the sun' springs to mind, genuinely original and entirely new design is incredibly rare.

I would assume from Murano but guess they could have been made in many places.

Glass / Re: Moon Crater Glassware? Stennett Willson Design?

Another image showing Moon vases here:

If the size stated there is correct they come in at least two different sizes, never seen any tumblers with this pattern though and these don't look like quite the same pattern.

from the limited size of the image, in the first post, my thoughts are that these aren't a match for those shown in the link.        However, thanks for adding that link Anne  -  some long time ago ................   I should take my own advice and look on the Board's search archive.
