i'm pretty sure these are designed by Per L├╝tken, although they're not in the 'Dansk Glas' book. With a bit of luck you'll find the PL monogram on the bottom of the decanter

ivo, thanks for the quick reply, there seems to be no signature or it has faded, are these the older holmegaard glass? Or is there a place to find out about these types of Labels? Thanks

signatures in diamond point do not fade  :lol:  

It seems the label with the crowned swan has been in use from the 1930s to 1975, but more important is the stylistic similarity to and colours used in the late fifties and sixties. Maybe one day you'll find the model depicted and described somewhere (replacements?) - until then this is all the info you're likely to get.

The form is close to designs by Jacob Bang in the 1940's but the Lutken pieces tend to be simpler like your pieces. They are not showing in Holmgaards 1950 book so probably date after that.

The tumbler is part of the Copenhagen-Clear range which comprised shotglasses, huge tall tumblers, and all shades of sizes betwixt. And I think there were some bowls too. I think it is by Lutken, but can't be 100%.

Oh, and the 'Holmegaards Glas' and separate 'Made In Denmark' labels are the ones used on pieces exported to America, as far as I've made out. I might be wrong, but whenever I've bought glass with these labels, it's always been from America (one instance was from an old jewellers' who had a lot of old-new stock they were selling, which makes the US export label theory more likely).
