Per Lutken designed this beautiful deep blue thick art glass vase for Holmegaard in the 1955. It is signed to the underside Holmegaard PL 16910. The series was never put into production so was a limited edition for the year of 1955. The beautiful colour is called Safir Farvet which translates as Sapphire Colour and is very pretty. The pieces were all hand blown and each vase is different with a unique organic shape. They were never mass produced so pieces are rare. The series can also be found at Hardernet under Glass Museum, sub heading Art Glass, sub heading, Per Lutkin no name. Please see below.
This particular piece is cylindrical in shape (known as cylindrisk in the Holmegaard catalogue). Its colour is really lovely, being deep sapphire blue to the solid base, and a paler shade as the glass thins to the top. The rim has a rolled fire polished edge and the underside of the base has a polished pontil.
There is no damage to the piece. There are light scratches and scuffs to the underside from use. There are two felt dot stickers to the base.
The vase stands 230mm tall and is around 52mm across the top rim.
