Not a 'beak vase', I do appreciate, but in view of the controlled bubble design I had high hopes this one might really be Holmegaard, and not Aseda which Ivo kindly gave as the id for my last 'bubbleless' vase. I know that Aseda pieces can have bubbles i.e. the bone vases for example, but am I correct in saying that in the main they do not have bubbles. Height is 275mm. Took me half the afternoon to clean out the inside, but had good results with my little copper balls, cerium oxide and 'Brasso'. Sorry, don't have the necessary books yet, but I'm getting nearer to them, I think. thanks for looking, and hope someone may recognize this piece. Paul S.
