I was just re-checking the reference in the DK book and that particular attribution is credited to Graham Cooley ( as in http://www.cambridgeglassfair.com/exhibitors/interviewarchive/int-cooley-graham.htm ) - does anyone have contact with him to be able to check if he revised this attribution later, or what he based it on originally? (Is he a board member?)

Hi Anne, I have Graham's email addy and am in contact with him from time to time.  I'll email and ask him although obviously he's terribly busy so may not reply immediately.

Hi there Nic

Mogens has replied to me already, I have now sent him the photo's and have also told him I understand if it takes a while.

Thank you for your help.

It'll be interesting to see what Mr Leth and Mr Cooley come up with.

Any chance of a peek at the Holmegaard pieces that the pitcher came with?  ;D

After some late-night rummaging through some pitchers I have boxed up, I'd like to add to my original opinion the possibility of it being Italian.

I found a stunted grotty brown thing that looks, overtly, nothing like your pitcher... but it is borrowing heavily from the Scandinavian style - JE Bang in particular - and has a similar thickness of glass, with a very similarly formed rim. Can't ID a maker, as it only bears a generic 'Made In Italy' export label.

So just another thought to toss into the mix.

Hi and good morning everyone. Firstly, the other pieces were not bought by me, one for sure was one of those holmegaard bottles in a kind of brown glass. Cannot remember the others well enough to describe, there was also some whitefriarss, wavey vase, ribbon trailed vase, and there were others of those as well, couldnt afford them most sold in the £40 range. I am not well enough off, so opted for the blue tall vase. There was also one of those castle vases, that look llike W/F if you dont know what your looking for.

I am very pleased with all the help you have given, and will keep you posted as to what Mogens says. And am looking forward to the other replies from the people you have also asked. If nothing else this has turned out to be a very interesting and enjoyable experience, no one has ever tried so hard to help me before.

 :)

Graham Cooley has replied to my email (huge thanks to him for taking the time to reply) and here's what he said...

'Thanks for the email. I was originally convinced that they were Holmegaard but am now unsure. I’ve got 8 of them bought over about 10 yrs in blue, purple and green. My attribution came from colour (they are uncased), quality of production and design (they look very Bang); my only reservation was the weight. I have never seen a reference. I think they are vases not pitchers; the conical shape directs the flower cone, the weight provides stability. They’re great objects and will eventually be positively ID’d; when I find one with a sticker I’ll let you know.'

Pip, thank you for contacting Graham and for posting his reply. So it's still an open question as to who made them... all we need now is a labelled one as Graham says.

Nic, your instincts were right! Nice one.  8)

Cazza, I think we can safely say the earlier reference I quoted is dubious.

It's good - for me at least - that I wasn't wrong, but it does mean it's a bit of a pain for a definite attribution.  ???

See what the glass society lead comes up with.

Hi there Nic and Pip and Anne
Still inconclusive, I await Mogens reply with great anticipation. Whatever it is, I have learned loads from this.
I still hope its homegaard. :-)

Not sure how long I will wait for his reply, but be assured will post his reply, I have one question if it takes say a couple of weeks for his reply should I open a new discussion or just search for this thread and post from here.
