Opalescent ribbed hyacinth vase

Any thoughts about this one would be much appreciated.  I've searched several hyacinth collectors' websites to no avail.  Just wondered if it could be American?
It stands 10" high and has spiral ribs.

TIA :)

Hi Anne,

I think that you will find that this is a Holmegaard piece, but Nic will hopefully be able to tell you more.
There is one here with a label.

Hi Anne,

It IS Holmegaard and designed by Michael Bang in 1981.
They come in 2 sizes, 16,5cm and 25,5cm. Both are in white only.

A BIG thank you Della and Patricia :clap:  I would never have guessed Holmegaard - that was a real surprise!
Mine has the remains of a label in the same place as the one shown on Della's link.  I've tried removing it but think I will have to use acetate as the glue is pretty well baked on.

Eat your heart out Nic!  ;D >:D ;D
