  1. I love the bottles in photos 13 and 14, especially the ones with the fishing and hunting scenes. Are these bottles for spirits? Are they still for sale in Finland? I also like the plain coloured bottles, the red and the blue. I like the very decorated crystal, but it is not my choice for using in the house. Wonderful photos, once again. You must have a huge library of photos.

    • Hello jackiequeen. How nice that You left Your comment here. Well, I think that those 13 and 14 are not at sale no more. In my family those blue bottles are our favorites. My wife is collecting blue bottles. Well, about the amount it is between 35 000 – 40 000. Regards.

  3. Bonjour Sartenada,
    Grande variété se styles (normal, en 300 ans !🙂 ), des objets les plus courants aux plus raffinés.
    Préférences : carafes 13 14, bonbonnes 16, certains objets contemporains de la 26.
    Ya-t-il des souffleurs de verre ?
    Levons notre verre à la semaine qui vient ! Tchin tchin ! 😛

    • Salut Marion.

      Très bien. C’était intéressant a entendre que le numéro 16 te plaît entre autres. Possiblement tu le sait que les bouteilles ont entourées par écorce de bouleau. L’écorce de bouleau était une matíère très populaire dans notre histoire. Mon père qui déjà mange les pissenlits par la racine depuis 1980 a fait beaucoup des chose de l’écorce de bouleau, comme chaussures de écorce de bouleau, sacs á dos etc.

      Ton question concernant: “souffleurs de verre “. Je ne sais pas combien il y a maintenetn, mais deux, je le sais dans Fiskars. On aussi organise cours.

      À votre santé, Marion.

  4. Good evening, Matti
    The glassblowing I know. My father learned the trade. He made beautiful lamp shades, vases and other things. I saw him when I was a child, to his job often as he produces. Glassblowing need a lot of air and healthy lungs by blowing through the long tube so that the liquid glass mass again comes out. It is also associated with a lot of heat. Here in our neighborhood, in Linz on the Rhine in Germany, is still a glass-blowing museum with many nice things that money can buy anyone. I will continue to try to visit your blog. I wish you good luck and health.
    Dear greetings Christel

  5. Guten abend Christel.

    Thank You telling about Your father and glass blowing. What a coincidence, because I was today visiting this museum again. There was an installation about Christmas decorations. From Germany there were a lot of thing. One special place in Germany is Lauscha.

    Now I am thinking shall I make a blog about this.

    Grûsse.

    • Salut Frammy.

      Merci beaucoup. Ce musée est également tout de voisinage où je vis. Chaque année, elle a grandes expositions. Cette année, quand il est la période de Noël, je vais vous présenter un poste d’elle.

    • Hi Mannalexandra.

      Thank You for Your visit and comment. Blue is my favorite color and that’s why my car is blue (electric blue) also.

      Have a great day!
