This isn't Holmegaard, is it?

I know Lutken did some (uncased) vases in a broadly similar shape for HG, but I can't find one which exactly matches this:

AUCTION

It looks quite modern to me. Any ideas?

I thought the same Nic.  I'm not that familiar with all the Holmegaard shapes, but I thought this looked a bit shiny and thin somehow.   :?  Still, someone obviously liked it!  :shock:

Maybe the Cancer Research shop have a new line?!  Cor, imagine paying £162, then finding it for £5.99 in a charity shop.   :shock:

If my morals were a little looser I'd be buying up the stock of Cancer Research and TK Maxx and reselling them on eBay...  :lol:

Not that I'm saying this seller is purposefully trying to misguide buyers - they did have a genuine piece of HG Carnaby on last week (tiny vase in white glass that went for a staggering £242! Such is the way of eBay, I bought an identical one for £50 a couple of days later).

Bonkers!  :shock:  Just putting things in the wrong section affects price so much too or mis-spellings.  I could spend days looking up 'Varse, Chrystal, Singed' (signed...lol).

There are literally hundreds of bargains out there to be had if you're prepared to stretch your brain a bit thinking of various mispellings of big glassworks.

Although simple things like "red vase" will usually bring up a dozen or more listings of Whitefriars and Riihimaen finishing at a couple of pounds.
