What is this?
« on: October 01, 2006, 02:43:59 PM »
This object came in a box with other glass, but it is a very strange looking thing.

The base has a large ground pontil mark, a short stem and looks like it has a pinched spout, but how it could be a jug is beyond me as there is no handle and it is very hard to pick up when full. ( I tried  :oops: )

It has been blown and there are tool marks and striations in the body.

Its about 9" tall and 7" across so it is some size.

Any ideas anyone?

Problem may be that the Tinypic image is unfeasibly large. Here is a smaller copy of Barbara's pic:

Hi,
I think this is quite a common form of martini pitcher, mainly scandinavian in design origin, and think that Holmegaard were one such manufacturer. No doubt Nic will correct me :wink:

Thanks Marcus,

Coo that takes me back to my yoof, when it was all the rage to drink Martini and lemonade and think you were the soul of sophistication, it was the next stage up from babycham  :shock:  :D both now taste vile  :? but I can remember getting bladdered on both :wink:

Those glasses look a bit to posh to be used with my jug, they need something with a little more panache, I think.

Looks like a Tivoli 14938 Martini mixer designed by Per Lutken for Holmegaard in 1953 and produced until 1980. Andy McConnell page 147
