Pablo vase by *Erkkitapio Siiroinen
Picked this up yesterday - thought it might be Riihimaki but it's got a seam that seems to be a poured seam, in that it goes down both sides and runs around the top. I haven't got any similar pieces with seams. Any idea what this is?
Does any body know of a definitive guide to Riihimaki shapes or at least a reliable one, and while i'm on the subject what was the signficance of the 1976 Export Collection? I see it refered to often but can't seem to find much info.
Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and happy to have found it. I believe this is a Riihimaki piece but I have not been able to find one quite like it. It is unsigned. Any help to id would be greatly appreciated. MJ
