That would be 1955.

Hi, thanks for your reply. I know that a lot of designers were guilty of copying each others designs and I found this interesting possibility of such. This is a design done by Geoffrey Baxter of Whitefriars fame when he was at The Royal College of Art. He was there between 1951-53 and I think this may well predated the Per Lutken's Canada range. The pieces in the picture are extremely similar and I wondering if Per Lutken might of nabbed them :)

The Baxter designs look a smidge closer to Lütken's 1948 'Neptun' service than to the later, more hourglass-shaped, 'Canada', I'd say.

Or even, perhaps, Whitefriars' own very lovely M60 service from the 1930s.

But hourglass-y Canada-esque forms had started to pop up in Lütken's work around 1947, and he'd pretty much nailed it by 1950 with an unnamed service he exhibited at the annual Charlottenborg Foraarsudstillingen that included salad bowls as well as drinkware.
