Holmegaard

Can anyone confirm is this piece by Holmegaard? I am sure I have seen it attributed to Per Lutken?

Cheers Al@mid20c

Doesn't match anything I've seen from Kastrup or Holmegaard. The colour and rim finish isn't quite right for either factory either.

Could be from one of the other Scandinavian glassworks, or possibly Germany.

It might be the 'Safir' series you're getting confused with:

Or 'Lavendel':

After some pottering about, I think that Germany is the likeliest origin for your vase - probably either Karl Friedrich or Hirschberg, based on finish and style of form.

Hi Nic,

Thanks for all your help regarding this piece.
I am fairly sure it's not Friedrich but I guess it just might be Hirschberg?

I'd rather think Ingrid than either Hirschberg or Friedrich...
