A birdbath base would surprise me on a Riihimaki piece, as they are mould blown not pressed

I have to agree with you there Christine, I've never seen a this type of Riihimaki with anything other than a mould blown base. I've had a search in the usual places and I can't find one of this design, it's not one of those Habitat ones you spotted is it Pip?

I dunno - I'd need to see the base - the 'birdbath' description was what prompted me to ask for a base photo - Riihimaki vases usually have either totally flat bases or, on some of the larger pieces, concentric rings. Also this isn't a shape I've ever seen positively identified as Riihimaki - although I do appreciate not all shapes have been documented yet.

I know the second site very well and they're definitely in the know about Finnish glass so I'd say they were most probably right. It'd be great to know for sure if it's part of the Tuulikki range. I'm still keen to see the base though - can you put a shot up please?

Thanks for the base photo, IMO it's not Riihimaki - sorry BB, it might be almost identical to the one in your link but it's not the same - I have never seen any Riihimaki pieces with that particular base finish. It's got to be some sort of copy.

Interestingly though that base was mould blown, not pressed. Perhaps best to keep birdbath base for pressed glass and use deeply indented base for mould blown glass.
