Scandinavian Glass / Re: Per Lutken vase from Holmegaard
« Last post by Pinkspoons on Today at 01:39:07 PM »
It's a Hellas vase - designed in 1950, in production until at least the mid-1970s. They're not uncommon, but do tend to be knackered because they're very usable.

Actually, just looking at the bowl and glasses - I'm not sure they're a 'set', but rather two separate designs. Whilst they're both cobalt blue, and have contiguous numbering, I'd expect the 'twist' handle of the glasses to be replicated on the bowl.

And I'm fairly sure that the ladle comes from the 1970 'Carnevale' set by Christer Holmgren (also for Holmegaard).

The four digit code means that it's an unika piece - created for exhibition and generally (but not always) made in very small numbers.

The link you found describes them as produced for a fortnight-long promotional event, with an engraver working on them at a street stall in Copenhagen, Nov 1971 - so there may be only a few about (with or without additional decorative/personalised engraving), barring any earlier/later production runs.

The Holmegaard mouth-blown versions of these decanters (kantineflasker, in Danish) - as opposed to the later auto-blown Christmas bottles - didn't have flared rims (at least on the ones I've seen) and tended not to be half-post.
A fantastic site, M, thank you  ;D Took me until 3am, but I had fun looking.
It is definitely opalescent glass. I guess that is what creates the illusion of it being quite blue on the outside near the top.
I will carry on searching  ;D

These are called 'Seltser' glasses in Denmark, produced domestically from ~1850 - but will very likely have been copied from elsewhere.

They usually carried over the names of foreign patterns, but I can't find 'Seltser' outside of the context of Danish glass, and 'Seltzer' - the most obvious transliteration - beings up nothing similar.
 :-[ sorry Della  - 4500 :o, but it's an amazing site.  I was agog at the beautiful glass and the sheer diversity and amount on that site.

Looking at the new pics, it looks more opalescent cased than alabaster cased (the Stevens and Williams 'alabaster').  So apologies for the red herring there.

I hope you find out who made it as it is beautifully made.
