I really wish it was me doing the hand-delivering, but sadly not (I'm fairly impervious to cold).

The only advantage of living in a place called Grimsby, which I do, is that there are going to be lots of Danes kicking about, and that sometimes they go back home. ;D So I'm just passing it on to a Danish friend to take for me.

Another exhibition item - a carafe, design number 2505 from the October 1971 exhibition at the Kunstindustrimuseet. Part of a tableware set that was never put into production.

Although much more modest than the vase, and worth considerably less, it's probably rarer in terms of numbers produced. Having asked around a few serious collectors, they've never before seen this form except for a sketch in Lütken's exhibition workbooks.
