Found this at a thrift store for $1.

Had to clean out some dirt that was inside but now it's looking good.

I remembered Per Lutkin did some Holmegaard pieces with more angular designs but this has no marking. The bottom is pretty flat with no pontil mark. Seems to be a very dark grey/smoke color.

Approximately 4 1/2" in diameter and 6 1/2" tall.

Could this be a Holmegaard piece?

I stopped selling glass around 30 years ago and so my knowledge is out of date and fading but I can't imagine that it is by Holmegaard.

I accepted that it is loosely based of Lutkin's designs for Holmegaard but, as it isn't "quite right" it suggests to me that it was made by another company attempting to "jump on the bandwagon".

Oh well. I guess it was wishful thinking on my part.

Still a nice piece of glass for $1 so I'm not too disappointed.

Thanks for the input.

I’m pretty certain it’s by Ikea! Have a look they are obviously inspired by Holmegaard. I spotted one at an antiques centre recently. It wasn’t attributed to a maker and was in a blue-grey colour. Quite attractive but didn’t have the right feel as I have a few Gul vases. A quick google found the very same from Sweden’s finest purveyor of flat-pack! Still lovely for $1.

Looks like you are correct. Those slick ikea designers got one over on me!

I think it's called the Pepparkorn or that's another model very similar to it.

Thanks for the info!

I thought making these exactly in the style of Holmegaard, flat on the bottom and lacking any pontil mark was quite challenging. I'm surprised Ikea was able to mass produce it.

I hope IKEA doesn't start making nearly indistinguishable Oiva Toikka style glass birds too.
