Thank's, this is the first signed Holmegaard vase that I've seen outside of the media.
That fleabite worries me a bit though. Working in a charity shop I tend to be fairly cautious about fleabites. :shock:
I laughed at that but I think everybody else may have frowned upon it. Probably thinking to themselves, I'm not buying any more Teddies from him.
Quickly changing the subject, there are quite a few vases out there with this kind of shape.
Before I picked the item up I thought it was Caithness. Of course, the weight was too heavy for that and when I turned it over I saw two Bars of gold light up in my eyes. I don't know where the third Bar went though.
I think the only other signed piece that I had was, um, i've forgotten the name. It might begin with a "Kirk" and it's probably Scottish and the firm definetly makes paperweights. Anyway, it was thick glass and clear with blue wavey lines. Signed on the base "Kirk.... 1979".
