Unika 7528 Glass Christening Cup

Kylle Svanlund, 1971

Kastrup-Holmegaard, Denmark


£70 (approx. € EUR / $ USD)

An exceptionally scarce and pleasingly chunky cobalt blue glass Christening cup (or Dåbskrus) with applied clear twist handle, designed in 1971 by Kylle Svanlund for Danish glassworks, Kastrup-Holmegaard.

The cups were created as 'unika' pieces - items made in very small runs for special exhibitions. This particular design was created for a public event in Copenhagen, 4th-20th November 1971, where a glass engraver could cut the to-be-Christened child's name onto the face of the glass in front of the customer. The Christening cups we have in stock are still blank.

Fully signed to the base 'Holmegaard - K.S. 7528' - with K.S. for designer Kylle Svanlund and the four-digit number denoting its unika status.

We have six glasses in stock. Price is per glass.
