Id required for orange/brown modern design piece.

I know I have seen this or something like it before somewhere, I'm not even sure if it is complete. What say you?

Thank you for that everyone. I have found some examples of Erik Hoglund similar to this one shown without any stopper - is it always the case that it would have one?

Designed by Erik Hoglund probably late fifties.

May not have started life with a stopper, if the neck hasn't been ground for a stopper to fit then my guess is it never had one. The few I have seen with stoppers didn't have boobs but this is far from definitive. ::)

The inside of the neck is very smooth so this may be how it is which would be good - do they have any value?

Nice quirky bit of Hoglund - everything has a value to someone. ;D

How tall is yours?

Hi John - sorry, not wanting to sound too money minded I just wondering if my £5.00 stake was justified.

This one stands about 125 mm tall.
