These are two of the very few Per Lütken designs I've got that were produced in the 1940s. The yellow-ish one was made in 1943 and the cobalt blue was made in 1944.

Lütken worked on this wavy edges (a question to English speaker: can I call them trilobed because of the three points or are these too subtle to be called lobes?) during 1943 and 1944. At the begining these vases had little knobs and relief decorations (and I'd love to get one of those) and those from 1944 have just got the pure soft shape and were made in greens and blues.

The yellow-ish one I've got is a rare case in both Lütken's and Holmegaard's production as it is acid-etched... a technique that I've seen in Swedish glass from the 1930s but never seen in Holmegaard items. It really is a special item, one of those that makes you feeld good just looking at it ;)

    I like the wavy edges! Must be very unusual and modern 1940s design!
