Holmegaard Beer Glass? Can anyone confirm?
« on: September 12, 2008, 05:19:58 AM »
Hi,

I got this beer mug/glass yesterday. I was squinting trying to read the signature on the base which I think says HG 8. It was a lovely thing anyway so I grabbed it. Ive had a search and cant find a Holmegaard mug in this style. Can anyone confirm for me? And a date maybe?

Not sure... it's not a design I've seen before. But it's possible it is Holmegaard, as they made masses of drinkware designs.

If it is Holmegaard, then it'll be from 1978 (the digit in the 'HG+number' signatures, used throughout the 1970s, refers to production year - so HG8 = 1978).
