I love this vase, but I don't know who designed or which brand it belongs to. I bought it on eBay (from a German seller) for almost nothing and it was labeled under "Erik Höglund for Holmegaard" (funny, isn't it?).

I have seen a simmilar one in opaline, again at a website from Germany, but have no clue about its origin. Because of its design I think it could be German or Swedish, but... So far it remains an unsolved mistery.

Anyway, what I find so appealing about it is the shape and the colour, both the sade of purple -pretty reddish- and the fact that the glass becomes almost opaque at the top (and i seem to recall the opaline one had the same characteristic).

    I see Denmark and a Lutken candlestick/vase and a Riihimaen Lasi shape. I agree it is a difficult one. I've spent hours looking and have enjoyed the search; but no result ....... yet!

    Thanks so much for trying! "Top difficulty" unless someone finds one in its original box or at least holding the original sticker... I first thought it could be Wiesenthalhütte or any other German brand, but no results... yet! :)
