These classic Gul vases (floor vases) were designed by Otto Brauer and produced by Holmegaard from 1962. The design inspiration was a similar vase by Per Lutken which appeared in 1958. Today the cased examples in bright pop art primary colours are the most sought after and the larger sizes can fetch a couple of hundred pounds, but I love the way the light reflects through these more affordable clear pieces.

They are available from Retro-ware at the Warwick Antiques Centre.

    Hi there! Do you know if the Gul vase was ever made in turquoise? I have recently picked one up but not sure if it’s genuine. Thanks
