    A bowl and an ice-cream dish in a wonderful bright green colour in the 'Komet' ('Comet') series produced at Holmegaard Glassworks 1938-1941. There is also a large pitcher for milk or cream meant to go with the bowl (a so-called 'strawberry set') as well as small plates. I cannot imagine a more summery thing than one of these bowls filled with strawberries!

    Also an amber-coloured bowl from another series of glass meant for daily use, 'Skjold' ('Shield') produced at Fyens Glassworks (1873-1990) from 1934 and onwards (not to be confused with Per Lütken's series of the same name from the 1960's). This was also produced in amber, light yellow, green, and colourless glass in various sizes and shapes; mostly bowls, but also pitchers, dishes, and vases. The Skjold items all have a nice starburst pattern on the bottom.

    There are many of these glass object meant for daily use available on markets and fairs - they don't seem to be particularly popular as they can often be had for very reasonable or even low prices. I think these things are very charming in their design and with their little irregularities and would much rather have one of these than buy a new bowl!

    Dimensions of Comet bowl: height 9 cm, diameter 22 cm. Diameter of dish: 28 cm.
    Dimensions of Skjold bowl: height 7 cm, diameter 15 cm

      Well said Jensen.
      So called utility items can often be very appealing and show great design.
      The good thing is the price - we can buy them and feel good using them!
      I would use these happily and admire them while I did so.
