Well I can say with some confidence that it's not Holmegaard.

Per Lutken *did* design a sugar/creamer set in 1950 with distinct similarities, but the handle part should be flat and the bases didn't have pontils.

It doesn't get you any closer to identifying it, but it does at least knock one factory off the list of possibilities.

I don't believe it is a pontil just the edge is ground.  The inside is smooth with the sides and not impressed at all.

Ah, sorry - it just looked like a pontil in the picture.

Here's a 1950 Lutken set that finished recently: AUCTION - it's similar in a concept, but different enough in execution to definitely not be Holmegaard.

I'm a bit miffed that I missed out on the auction, actually - but I dozed off before it finished.  ::)
