Per Lütken monogram and pattern number, dating production to post c.1965.

The design is a 'Hjertevase' from the 1955-designed 'Menuet' range.

Thank you very much, Nic!  :-*   Do I take it that 'Hjertevase' means Heart vase?  'Cos now I look at it, it is sort of heart-shaped!   :D   But what was the 'Menuet' range?

Yes, it just means heart vase.  ;D 'Menuet' was just a range of these vases in a variety of sizes/colours (Aqua Blue, Smoke (the colour of yours), and Clear).

Thank you again!  And thank you for telling me the colour.  When I first picked it up I thought it was just grey, then I looked again in different light and thought it was a turquoisey blue, and when I got it home and looked again I could see a greenish tinge!  So 'smoke' is a good enough description for me!  ::)
