Why Buy the Tall Holmegaard Carnaby Blue Bulge Vase?
Our Tall Holmegaard Carnaby Blue Bulge Vase is a fine example from the renowned producer of Scandinavian art glass.
Designed by Per Lütken in 1968, Holmegaard Carnaby glass was a big 20th-century success. The Holmegaard Carnaby range itself is identifiable by bold shapes and bright colours in cased glass. Coming in about 16 shapes and in several colours, some Holmegaard Carnaby glass is rarer than others. For example, the transparent ruby red glass from 1968, disappears from 1969. Established in 1825, the Holmegaard Glassworks in Denmark started as a bottle producer. While its first century was lacklustre, its fortunes were changed for the better by the designs of Jacob E. Bang (1899-1965), Per Lütken (1916-98), and Bang’s son, Michael (1944-2002).
Per Lütken worked at Holmegaard from 1942 until his death in 1998. His designed resulted in some of the company’s most well-loved pieces. Indeed, his work remains highly rated. Beautifully tactile with a wonderful design, Carnaby glass never dates and original examples are a shrewd investment. Indeed, Holemgaard’s huge success in the mid-century encouraged many imitations. So, before purchasing, consult a glass identification guide or work with a trusted dealer.
