Te original "bonevase" was designed by Per Lütken in 1955. As one can read on his "Glas is life" book: "Bonevases we called them. Luckily they were not put into actul production at Holmegaard, but other glassworks made a living out of the idea". the glassworks that made a living out of the idea were the Finnish Humppila and, most importantly, the Swedish Aseda.

This one in red and bubled base is really nice. It stands around 15 cm. tall.

    Are those extra swirls on the lip?

    You mean the bubbles?
  3. AmberRose AmberRose, 2 years ago
    No the mouth of the vase.

    o, they're just reflexions on the glass :)

    I thought that might be the case but you always find pieces that have fun little twists. ;)

    I have a similar red from Åseda, and a blue one. Åseda made this vases with bubbles in the foot and often with straight, round mouth without folds. Many says they are ugly, but i think they are charming. I beleve it was not Per Lütken who design this vases from the beginning? It was Paul Kedelv at Flygsfors in 1951-52. You have one of this type in this brochure from Flygsfors 1952:

    Thanks for that link, Nils.

    I think they're charming too :)

    Well, it was Lütken himself who said so. The Kedelv one looks more like a flower than a bone. Maybe he inspired Lütken who made it look more slender and he inspired the others :)

    Have a very nice New Year's Eve, Nils!!!

    Probably the designers inspired each other, as usual. Antonio Da Ros glass from the 60's in Sommerso underlayer technique has in some cases nearly identical predecessor in Gunnar Nylund pieces from the 1950s at Strömbergshyttan. Here is one more bonevase like vase, signed "Paul Kedelv Flygsfors 1952":

    The differenses against the Åseda bonevase: The folds in the mouth, no bubbles in the foot and two layer of colours. Otherwise the same shape and technique i suppose.
    I wish you also a nice New Year's evening!

    This is a real bonevase! and it's beautiful!
  12. rebessin rebessin, 2 years ago
    I have now read about Lütkens bonevases, and the first seems to have been developed and produced in 1952, so who was first and who influenced the other is probably hard to say for sure.

    Well... as he's saying in his book he designed it and others made a living out of the idea we should give some credit to him...
