 There is little biographical information about Otto Brauer. Lesley Jackson's book says that he was a glassblower at the Odense factory, and in 1962 he designed a cylindrical floor vase, a variant on a vessel by Per Lutken, which had been designed in 1958. The vase remained in production for many years.

The factory at Odense was actually Fyens Glasvaerk. In 1965, Holmegaard, Kastrup, Hellerup and Fyens merged to become Kastrup og Holmegaards. Holmegaards is still in existence, but whether it would have any information on a glassblower who worked for Fyens in the 1960s is questionable. There were many prominent designers working for those firms, and I find their names, but not Brauer's in the books on Danish glass.
