Vintage Holmegaard Per Lutken Martini Pitcher & Glasses

CLICK on the thumbnail photos above to enlarge for better detail!

is a lovely vintage Martini Pitcher with 6 glasses set I believe in a Per Lutkin design by Holmegaard Glass. As one can see from the pictures it is typically Scandanavian with a simple yet elegant look accentuated with a smokey gray color. I believe this set is from the 70's. T is on the pitcher an elongated manufacture bubble about 1/4 inch on one side as well as a minor scratch about 1/8 inch near the top though these certainly do not detract from the general aesthetics of the piece and is only mentioned for accuracy. It appears a few of the glasses have a couple of pinhead air bubbles and other artifacts from the manufacturing process as one can see from the photo showing the bottom of the glasses. This treasure measures approximately as follows:

Pitcher - 9 1/2 inches high x 5 1/2 inches longest point base to handle

Stirrer - 11 1/2 inches

Glasses - 2 7/16 inches high x 2 3/4 inches in diameter widest point

He died before permission was granted.
