Holmegaard vase info please.
« on: February 04, 2010, 12:56:54 AM »
Hi all, can anyone please tell me what this vase is called and the year/s it was produced. Also on the label it has number 281 on the bottom, what does this mean? It is 10" tall.

Hyacinth vase, form 341 12 29, designed 1981 by Michael Bang.

The numbers on the label mean that it was produced during the second quarter of 1981. Although, as a rule, the information on labels should always be taken with a pinch of salt as they're easy to peel off and reapply to other items - and this seems quite commonly done with Holmegaard glass, unfortunately.
