    There are 'blue days' and there are 'Safir days'!

    Yesterday I had a Safir day that brought some real joy to my life down here in Sydney, Australia. It was the first Sunday in the month and I went to the Collector's Fair at Wentworth Park for day out on the hunt. I was really surprised to see a "DRÅBEVASE" - Per Lütken, Holmegaard Glasværk.

    It was signed 15470 with the normal engraved Holmegaard & PL monogram. I was a bit confused though because I thought it was the same size as the small version that I already had at home. I really thought it was a duplicate!

    But when I arrived home I saw that I now had a larger vase.... something I had been awaiting a long time. This really did bring a smile to my face.

    H: 14.5 cm. It weighs 865 grams.

    So now it joins the other two: the big 15472 and the tiny 15469.

    The large one is:
    H: 44cm It weighs 6.5 kilos.
    H: 17.3 ins Weight: 14.3 lbs.

    The smaller one is only 12 cm high.

    The three vases were bought separately, many years apart.

    The larger one was found in a second hand store twenty five years ago with some very dusty dried flowers in it. I had already started collecting signed pieces by PER LÜTKEN in the seventies, but this was the largest piece I had ever seen. I paid twenty dollars for it.

    PER LÜTKEN (1916 – 1998)

      Three is a balanced group! Great find - look wonderful together. Is that a tinge of purple or just the light? Nice photos!
      Planned to go yesterday bu...work you know...need money to buy glass (and food...less important). Maybe next month!
    13. vetraio50 vetraio50, 7 years ago
      No it is the light, KAREN.
      My phone can be troublesome with adding tints.
      Thanks again!

      I know exactly what 15471 is Anne! I know where there is one in Bondi Junction. I just cannot afford the price the lady wants for it. A waiting game.

      Surely we can find you another one. Once you have two they will trip over themselves for your affection. Those of us who want to must help you search...do you have a photo?
