Identification of green bottle/decanter please ?
« on: July 06, 2009, 07:48:26 PM »
Hi,

Another item I picked up at the weekend  -  a light green decanter shaped piece - it's quite crude & possibly has some age to it - the top is thick & heavy & has a spout shaped moulding.  There is also an embossed crest / coat of arms on the front

Ther is a small notch on the back at the base & no distingushing marks - any ideas ????

Thanks

It's quite similar in form to the Holmegaard 'Viking' carafe - although there are enough differences to make me suspect that yours is from a different factory, but likely of similar age (1960s-1970s).

It was likely produced for a wine producer/retailer, as a fancy way of distributing their wares, and the crest on the front the company's logo.

Hi

Yes - thats seems a fair comment - it is similar but agreed not by Holmegaard.  Thank you very much for the info

Regards
