Hi there. I found these at an antique fair and thought they looked interesting. Any ideas chaps? I'm leaning towards Danish but i dunno. Thanks Chris :)

That attribution is most believable. It is also much larger than the Höglund pieces.

Ivo, do you have a reference for the smaller bowls as Höglund? The designs lack the subtlety I associate with Erik Höglund's work. They remind me more of the small blue fish bowls you posted a while back.

Many of those are not by Hoglund. All the 'Zoo' animals for a start.

Here is the thread I mentioned earlier (it was me who posted the blue bowls...): http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,27440.0.html

Googling "Hoglund Boda Ashtray" brings up this page: http://images.google.co.uk/images?hl=en&source=hp&q=Hoglund%20Boda%20Ashtray&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wi

The first three images are not E.H. designs, though they may have been 'inspired by' his work, neither are the lions.

Hopefully Daniel S will swing by and comment, at any rate the bowls in question don't look to be Hoglund to me.

They do have a striking similarity to mine the blue ones that is.
