    Some time ago I posted here the picture of two DISKO items (http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/41272-disko-per-ltken-holmegaard-1957?in=collection-464), No, checking out my glass pictues I see there are more DISKO vases, so here they are. The rarest seem to be the ball vase (not realated at all to the RONDO ball vases ) that we've got in three different colours: Disko, Greenland and Labrador (one is Carlos's, the other one's mine and the third one -this one- was a gift from Carlos to me).

    I'm adding the pic I posted previously, so you can see at just one glance the five DISKO items in my collection.

      So the shape is called Disko?

      They are so nice. I am sure: There will be a Holmegaard Museum in Madrid one day.

      Thanks Mustang. Moonstone, Sean, Vet and Cobalt for the comments and/or loves.

      As it happens with most of Lütken's series of the 50s and 60s, their items have their colour in common, not the shapes. So these five items are called DISKO because of their colour.

      To add some confussion, there's a design calle DISKOS, whcih came in different colous (Laguneblaa, Safir, pink... this is it: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/39253-laguneblaa-candleholder-per-ltken-ho?in=collection-449) But there is nos DISKOS in the DISKO range :)

      Good Lord Austro, you have so many cool pieces you didn't notice one!
      The color is so interesting, almost an army green. Real earthy.
      How's school going? We are headed out for vacation today, which will include a wedding. Will be in your old stomping grounds, Miami

      The best thing, if you looks at these pictures of DISKO island in Greenland you can see the same colour :) http://www.greenland-travel.com/tours/greenland/discobay_ilulissat

      O, I will someday go back to Miami... I didn't say good bye properly ;) Have a great time Amber!!!!
