I bought a 8.1/2" Paper Bag vase from Finnstyle and afterwards noticed a pop-up on my screen giving me the offer of purchasing a 3.1/2'vase, which I duly did. The taller vase is made in Germany and beautiful but when I received the smaller vase it appears to have been made in China, with different underside markings, a slightly different colour, heavier without the clarity and sparkle of the German vase. I immediately telephoned Finnstyle and they confirmed the smaller one was made in China and I have returned it and ordered the 4" German vase, which will, I hope, match the larger one in colour and look. I would have appreciated more information on this vase in the pop-up which would have saved the trouble and expense of a return. Must say, the Finnstye people were very nice to deal with but as an oversight I think the mis-selling needs to be rectified.
