Random views recently captured around my house

Do these large glasses have a name? Or a use, for that matter? Other than looking pretty, I mean? I found the large teal one this week and bought it on impulse for kr 15 (less than $3). Only when I put it on the shelf did I realise how stunning the colour actually is.

The fruit dish in a similar colour in the background is by Per Lütken and the vases are Hovmanstorp handblown crystal made in Sweden. Incidentally they were the first items in my glass collection, many years ago.

Når du ikke får plass til mer hjemme hos deg, kan jeg godt oppbevare ting for deg? Lekre glass!

Oooh I think I have the sibling of your black and white bowl here in Australia (it does say 'Made in Norway' on the bottom). It's packed away at the moment while we await our new kitchen, but I'll send you a pic when I find it again...

what a lovely connection across the miles - you can't beat gorgeous design!
