ID Help Please. Arctic Blue Vase - ID = Per Lütken Akva
« on: June 21, 2014, 02:36:24 PM »
Hello!

I picked this up this morning because I loved it.
It's 10" 25cm tall with a lovely wavy rim, a large ground pontil and is signed TS or maybe SII?

The colour is like Whitefriars Arctic Blue

Does anybody recognise it please?

Thanks in advance :)

I have amended the title for you - and included "or" between Scandi & British. I have also reduced it a little to allow for an ID, assuming we can get one.

Looks very much like Per Lütken Akva vase to me which would normally be signed with the PL monogram. No idea on the SII or IIS though.

Is it a seconds mark?

Thank you! kisslikeether! :) It definitely is!

and Hi Christine

There's nothing, that I can see, to suggest it's a second.. odd!

It is a one AKVA Per Lütken vase. look here:

The mark I have found another place among Holmegaard work:

Could mean second sorting, but that's a guess.

Holmegaard used to mark their seconds with either '2', 'II' or 'IIS' - I've had quite a few of them, and very often it's impossible to tell why it was discarded.

Possibly it was a conspiracy of naughty glass engravers earning a few kroner on the side.
