Beak Vase - ID help please
« on: October 17, 2006, 10:02:04 AM »
ello, I've got this beak vase and I'm pretty sure it's not a Per Lutken because of the shape of the beak and the body is a little too slim.  It does have a polished pontil, perhaps it's Whitefriars - any ideas?  TIA

Not Whitefriars or Holmegaard... No idea what it could be, though. Sorry, Pip.

No luck so far, i was thinking of the swedish or norwegian makers but most of them sign their work, either generic like modern Hadeland og like the Örrefors or Flygsfors signs with identifiers.

Am certain i've seen very similar vases so will keep my eye open.
