RHIIHIMAKI AND OTHER SCANDI LOOKALIKES

Three beautiful pieces of Rhiihimaki, Finland.  But I've seen them mistaken for Whitefriars in spite of the fact they are iconic and desirable for  collectors  of this Finnish glass.

  1. I found a fake Whitefriars vase at the weekend clearly marked Made in Italy, it looks like the Aurinko Sun vase above. Do you know anything about the maker - I can find nothing online?
