I just got this vase on the mail... I have to admit I had completely forgotten I had bought it :)

Erik Höglund is one of those designers I adore but don't buy much of his stuff because of the absolutely serious storage issue I've got at home. But after all, I can't get everything I want, can I? What made me get this is that I paid almost nothing for it - around 20 euros including shipping costs :)

Besides, it is huge (23 cm. tall), fully signed (H 956/230), very heavy and is green, and so far I had no green Höglunds in my collection.

The second picture displays all my EH stuff. So far the only missing piece in it is one of those amazing person decanters. Maybe one day...

    Thanks Amber and Bellin. I'm very happy with it, even if I've got to keep a nice red vase in order to display it :)

    I've only recently discovered Hoglund after finding my piece in a thrift shop. I could tell as soon a I picked it up it was art glass, then I saw the engraved numbers etc. it's the same green as your piece, I think they're related! I've just seen an amber piece similar to mine.

    Woow, love your compote! There's no doubt they come from the same series but ours have got so many bubbles inside! I absolutely love it!
