Nope, definitely wasn't me.  :)

Do you mean Weidingerglas, the Danish glass decorating firm? They used to handle some (or all?) of Holmegaard's silkscreening needs from the 1970s onwards.

Oh, yes, I've not read that history bit before - so the family Weidinger had actually been decorating glass at/for Holmegaard since 1888! I only knew of the modern stuff.

I'll have to spend some time on the linked-to website about the family's history too: http://www.weidinger.dk/

Edit: A quick translation of the family history bit on the company's page...

Quote
The Weidinger family came to Holmegaards Glasværk, near Næstved, in 1888.

The family came, like other skilled glassworkers, from Bohemia, and worked with decorating, amongst other things, the Christiansborg service, a service that is still used at the Royal new year feast.

If you should be interested in knowing more about the old family, and the industry history they were a part of, can you go to  http://www.weidinger.dk/
