It was about time i started seriously posting my Nanny Still items. In fact, the part of her designs in my collection is the second most important part of it (first one, of course, is Per Lütken).
These may be familiar to you as vikma has already posted a couple of items from this AMETIISTI range, although he's got many many more (http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/73490-nanny-still and http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/71690-nanny-still).
This range was designed in 1960 and the lilac colour was the most popular one at the time amongst the consumers of Riihimäki glass (in fact, at the same time Tamara Aladin was working almost exclusively in this colour). It consists mostly of vases (both cylindrical and cone shaped), round shaped bowls (both vases and bowls have collars) a jug and an oil and vinegar set (very sought after!).
