A rediscovered design vase from the 60’s, the JEB 65 by Holmegaard has certainly got my attention with it’s mouth blown delicate white transparent glass in a sleek contemporary shape with stunning details such as the clear glass base.
Found at the back of a shelf in the extensive archive at Holmegaard, designed originally in 1965 under the name ’Antique Green Line’, by Jacob E. Bang, Holmegaard has chosen to introduce this vase in a opal white version. There is no shape that can complement a bouquet of flowers more beautifully… we think!
Originally the vase was only 12,5cm tall but today the iconic design vase JEB 65 is available in to sizes 14.8cm and 21cm tall.

The history of Holmegaard glassworks began in 1823, when Count Christian Danneskiold-Samsøe sought permission from the King of Denmark to establish a glassworks at Holmegaard Mose bog. However, the Count died in 1823 without receiving an answer to his request. His widow, Countess Henriette Danneskiold-Samsøe, decided to pursue the project. The factory started up in 1825 and produced only green bottles, but Henriette wanted to develop and grow.
The history of Holmegaard glassworks is a story of a few small glassworks in a peat bog, growing to become part of a large modern group over a period of 175 years. During the 20th century, artists entered the equation, designing and shaping Holmegaard’s glass products. Today some of the best artists in Denmark are associated with Holmegaard’s glass production.
