Holmegaard Q - ID = Kastrup or Kastrup-Holmegaard
« on: July 12, 2008, 06:40:45 PM »
First, want to confirm this is Holmegaard Cluck-Cluck?

And second, were these made in small miniature type size?  The one shown is about 8 inches tall, but there was another one I didn't get that was about 5 inches tall, in emerald green.

Has a ground/polished pontil and thin/lightweight glass.  No marks.  Thanks!

Yours was either made by Kastrup Glas if it was made between c.1950 - 1965, or by Kastrup-Holmegaard if made post-1965. There's no way to tell without an original factory label, sadly. The colour is Oceanblue - originally a Kastrup colour.

Standard production models came in 5 sizes: 12" / 300mm, 10" / 250mm, 9" / 225mm, 7.75" / 190mm, and 5.75" / 140mm. There were some properly miniature models made as production samples and given out by travelling reps - these were 4.33" / 110mm, and were always signed 'Holmegaard' to the base.
