As an answer to vlkma238412's latest post on a Nanny Still jug (http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/86416-nanny-still-t-355), I am posting this one to prove that it really is the same T/355 design, only in a different and unusual colour.
These set is know as SV, meaning Sininvihrea, or greenish blue, because of the colour of the items belonging to it. But as usually happens with Riihimäki glass, you can find colour surprises such as red vases in a series where only pieces in olive green, amber, yellow amber and clear glass were made, cobalt blue decanters in another one with only uranium yellow, clear and dark green appear in catalogues... In this case, the SV series seems to be the funniest of all because its name comes from the colour used to link all these items, so apart from the greenish blue (or is it bluish green?) you can find rare pieces in pink glass (such us my decanter and glasses set on the 4th pic) and in petrol blue, just like vlkma's.
