Found these tho tiny ashtrays last Sunday and was quite content to recognise Höglund - until I looked it up. All the Höglund ones I could find were round. Then my COH (clever other half) recognised the design: the town arms from Scheveningen and Voorburg, which together with The Hague form the Haaglanden.
Scheveningen - the fishing port of The Hague - has three herrings in its coat of arms, while Roman city Voorburg has a picture of the Roman castellum. The Hague itself (a stork on one leg) is missing - and there may have been a fourth, the lesser known Voorschoten.
Question is, were these commissioned from Boda, or from Holmegaard? Or should I be looking for Leerdam, who I dare say
quite mastered the art of inspired design?
