Steve, you see these vases on eBay a lot called 'dogbone' vases.

Well 'Knoglevase' does translate as Bone Vase, so they're not too far off.  ;D

In 1952 Lutken designed a shape similar to this called "Knoglevase" for Holmegaard. It was in uncased Labrador (a dark smokey blue colour) and had no bubbles in the base. It was never put into full production and the few that very occasionally hit the market were bought at exhibitions.

In 1971 the pattern was reissued in Labrador cased in clear, and in clear glass, in five different sizes (patterns 2471 (largest at 50-75cm) through to 2475 (smallest at 13cm). As far as I know, these were just for an exhibition at Copenhagen's Kunstindustrimuseet (The Danish Museum of Art & Design) where a few of Lutken's 1950s designs were adapted and revised (including the beak vase). Both of the above should be signed with Holmegaard, the Lutken monogram, and the pattern number.

During the early 1970s the pattern was rejigged exclusively for tourists visiting the factory shop - but these were massive beasties, and had swirls of colour in the base, rather than the Aseda bubbles. I don't think these were signed.

Here's one that had just been made in 1973: Holmegaard Factory Tour

Brilliant Nic!  I have only seen one, fully signed and monogrammed, but it was too tall for my liking (i.e. too big for a box! ) so I left it alone.

I've only ever seen one come on eBay - 15cm tall - but the bidding went silly so I had to pass on it. Never seen one anywhere else outside of books.  :(

Just to add - they were also made in Akvablå (Aqua Blue) in 1952.

On Thursday I invested anothe Pound in a small bud vase with a red bubble base - complete  with a Holmgaard label on the base - Danish


The label you have on the base of this may be  "G Hardy Co." who were importers of glass into Britain in the 50's & 60's.

I would also say definitely Aseda
