I only bought this vase out of interest.

It was sold as 1970's and as a Porcupine vase because of its spikes.
Height 12.5" or 32 cm and weighs 1.35 kg

Thanks Roy

I think Rose is making a joke about the vase but saying she likes it.

Do you have a reference to the round Holmegaard one? I wouldn't say this was Holmegaard, as it looks pressed and not blow moulded.

Pressed glass in more than one colour is very unusual.

Ok. I didnt mean to be sensative but im so new. I googled porcupine glass, it had another name aswell.  A couple of other names we used in the description of porcupine glass, but i cant remember. I have a shocking memory. Ok

I have a vague feeling we've seen one of these on here before, but I can't find any reference to it.  The colours suggest newer production to me, although the design is complicated...is there much base wear?

Those look more Borske Sklo than Holmegaard I think.
