Ash tray

This pale blue glass ash tray was designed by Per Lutken in 1956 and made in 1960 by Holmegaards Glassworks of Fensmark in Denmark.

The oval ash tray has the engraved marks: 'HOLMEGAARD' and '19 { } 60'.

Since the end of World War II, the national design organisations of Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark have collaborated with joint exhibitions and prizes to promote modern functional design. This resulted in a characteristic 'Scandinavian Style' which was a major influence on world taste.
