The frog does look a little worried. ;D

Lovely pot or jar, I would have bid too.

No the one at the other end of the shelf far right, square shoulders, very knobbly- sounds like a man I knew once!

 :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: Well Astrid, I don't suppose you expected this kind of result, or maybe you did...perhaps it's me who's left with her jaw dropping with wonder.  I am so pleased that there are folk out there who collect in such quantities.. in live with it all over the house. .G my hubs has actually succumbed to oooing and coooing over the wonderful displays, and I'm desperately trying to remember whats in the boxes in the loft. I've seen so many pieces that stir memories. I think a long overdue re-look is on the cards.   So again, thanks everyone.  :rah: cheers steph.

That will be the one on the left in this photo: https://picasaweb.google.com/Johnmj100/EarlyMdinaGlass#5443333966448149218

It's a textured bottle from Mdina circa 1970, design is by Michael Harris. They come in amethyst too and in three shapes.

Really liked that set of pictures David (langhaugh).  I try to collect Danish & Swedish glass & paperweifghts & let's face anything I fancy.  Really enjoyed some of you Holmegaard & Kosta Boda bits.  Particularly enjoyed your Harrtill glass - much more decorative than any I have seen here.   Hope to post a set of Danish glass pictures later today - my cabinet is nearly rearranged.

Well the Danish are almost all there.  Only a couple of large bowls and three Michael Bang pieces are missing - a Sakura vase, a spherical Atlantis Vase, and a very special paperweight - Peter Harder had never seen one like it.   This I will put into a subsequent reply.

On Top of the Cabinet - All Per Lutken designs I think.
Top Shelf - 3 Michael Bang at extreme left, 3 Kastrupin the middle rear, other 8 pieces are all Per Lutken designs
Middle shelf - All Per Lutken designs except for the owl pwt & the decanter(don't know who designed this version)
Bottom Shelf - 5 different Holmegaard designers PLUS the only non-Holmegaard piece by Dansk Glas Kunst( the one with the long label in the middle)

Hope you enjoy.

Here are the three bits of Michael Bang I could not find to fit in the display.   :-[

They are all delightful Ross....shame we can't find out who the designer of the Kluk Kluk decanter was...I have a lovely bottle green one with the crown stopper in clear glass.  It has the full label on it ans was given to me by a Danish friend years ago. 
She also gave me a Humpila plate...both are beautiful, and at the time when she gave them to me, it was because I collected green glass, and I don't think I really appreciated the art that went into their making. 
I do now though!! 

I can't see the owl properly!! :cry:

Just for you, Rosieposie, an individual Danish owl by Christer Holmgren.
