VINTAGE COBALT BLUE ART GLASS PIGGY BANK FROM THE DANISH STUDIO HOLMEGAARD

DESIGNED BY JACOB E BANG (1899 – 1965) THOUGH THIS SHAPE IS OFTEN ATTRIBUTED TO HIS SON MICHAEL WHO DIDN’T ACTUALLY JOIN HOLMEGAARD UNTIL THE 1980’S HAVING PREVIOUSLY WORKED AT THE ODENSE STUDIO

FEATURING A RAISED “DEW DROP” DECORATION ACROSS THE ENTIRE OUTER SURFACE WITH HEART SHAPED OPEN SNOUT AND SLOT CUT TO THE TOP

NO BASE BUNGS SO THESE PIGGY’S WERE OFTEN SMASHED TO RETRIEVE ONES PENNIES….. (THERE ARE SOME COINS WITHIN THIS PIGGY BANK THAT I WILL LEAVE)

MEASURING 120MM LONG BY 80MM WIDE BY 90MM HIGH

OFFERED IN GOOD VINTAGE ORDER WITH ONE FLAW TO THE INSIDE OF THE MONEY SLOT AS NOTED IN THE FINAL TWO IMAGES (SMOOTH TO THE TOUCH WITHIN)

PRESUMABLY WHERE THE PIGGY HAS BEEN SHAKEN TO EXTRACT COINS THOUGH COULD HAVE HAPPENED DURING MANUFACTURE AS THE SLOTS WERE GROUND CUT FROM THE FINISHED ARTICLE

CIRCA 1960’S

JACOB E. BANG WAS HOLMEGAARD’S FIRST DESIGNER AND JOINED THE STUDIO IN THE 1920’S

HE WAS REALLY AN ARCHITECT, BUT AFTER WORKING WITH GLASS SHIFTED HIS ATTENTIONS COMPLETELY TO INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

BANG IS KNOWN AS DENMARK’S FIRST INDUSTRIAL DESIGNER AND THE CREATOR OF FUNCTIONALISM IN DANISH GLASS

HIS DESIGN MANTRA WAS ‘BEAUTIFUL, STRONG, PRACTICAL AND AFFORDABLE’, AND IT WAS HIS WORDS THAT FORMED THE BASIS FOR THE HOLMEGAARD GLASS MISSION STATEMENT “EVERY DANE SHOULD BE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO OWN A HOLMEGAARD GLASS”
